News: UMN Seed Grant

Together with Dr. Joanna Strycharz from the University of Amsterdam, I have received an UMN Seed Grant to study chilling effects due to corporate surveillance in real-life. This summer and fall, we will be conducting qualitative interviews to get more insights into this topic.

We want to thank the University of Minnesota for giving us this opportunity. It would not have been possible without this grant.
