Human-Centered Data Analytics


I joined CWI in January 2021 as a PhD-student at Human-Centered Data Analytics group. My research project is also a part of the Cultural AI Lab. Diversity of viewpoints is one of the societal values that drive my research curiosity. I investigate how to bring out multiple perspectives about digital cultural heritage objects and represent them in transparent narrative forms with semantic web technologies and machine learning. After obtaining my Bachelor’s in Journalism in 2017, I studied computational approaches in media during the “Data Journalism” Master programme at HSE University (Moscow, Russia). As an Erasmus+ scholar, I gained interdisciplinary creative research experience studying “Media Technology” (Leiden University, the Netherlands) during my exchange semester in 2019. In my Master thesis, I showed how text mining methods help collect missing data on crimes against LGBT+ people in Russia from court decisions to enhance data-driven storytelling.
