Dr Ana Valdivia is a Departmental Research Lecturer in AI, Government and Policy at the Oxford Internet Institute (OII).
Dr Valdivia investigates how datafication is transforming political, social and ecological worlds. Building on her experience as a mathematician and computer scientist, her interest lies in investigating power relationships in algorithmic governance and how AI is impacting on local communities, borders and territories.
In her research, Dr Valdivia aims to examine the eco-political impact of algorithmic systems by understanding its life cycle from natural resources extraction to electronic waste dumps and how it could jeopardise fundamental rights.
