Six new PhD-students at Department of Computer Science

In the last two months several new PhD students have enrolled at Department of Computer Science. In the next couple of years, they will undertake research in research areas such as “Algorithms and Data Structures”, “Computer Mediated Activity” and “Cryptography and Security” - just to name a few.

On August 1st Simon Enni started as a new 4+4 PhD student in the Data-Intensive Systems group in collaboration with the Computer Mediated Activity group

The project, currently termed FounData, is focused on developing new technologies, designs, and concepts improving the transparency and interpretability of data mining and data analytics. The goal is to make analyses as well as their results and the implicit assumptions underlying these easier to understand, discuss, and criticize, improving its usability in the many fields that have become reliant on such analyses like political decision making, modern medicine, or economics, where data science expertise might not be ubiquitous. The project is supervised by Associate Professor Ira Assent and co-supervised by Professor Susanne Bødker.
