Biography

Justine is currently holding a research associate position in the School of Social and Political Sciences, carrying out various research projects within the fields of digital media and communications, and sociology. Justine also works as a co-investigator for the project ‘Smart Publics’, a research collaboration between the University of Glasgow and the University of Sydney. Drawing on research case-studies in London, Glasgow, Sydney and New York, the project aims to better understand the social, design and governance implications of smart street furniture (e.g. smart benches) and how these fit into existing urban landscapes,reshaping the ways in which different groups interact with public spaces and cities in the process.

Justine has recently completed her doctoral research in Sociology at the University of Glasgow which examined young people's engagement with social media platforms and the ways in which their understandings and practices were informed by the techno-social structures of the platforms, and by broader power relations. 

Her research interests include: the impacts of digital data, platforms and technologies on society; the unequal distribution of power and responsibility between private corporations and users; the pervasive neoliberal ideology underlying representations, understandings and uses of technology and data; the normalisation of surveillance in everyday life, as well as the innovative repurposing of new media in social research.
