Ece Elbey is a new Ph.D.-student at Uncertain Archives

Ece Elbeyi holds a degree in Industrial Engineering with a background of engineering experience. She worked as a research assistant in Media Department at İstanbul Bilgi University where she received her Master of Arts with a thesis on social media bots. Her work aims to investigate and speculate the role of intervention of bot accounts on transforming the notion of public emerging through social media platforms. Her research interest is situated at the intersection between digital technology and culture.

During her PhD in University of Copenhagen, she will be working on investigating cultural dynamics through mundane practices of artificial intelligence based conversational agents and personal assistants from a feminist technoscience perspective. She believes that the computational skills she obtains as data mining, analysis and visualization in Python and R will have strong contribution to her research methodologically.
