Claudia is interested in exploring to what extent digital traces can be used to learn about the interests, knowledge, habits and biases of individuals and societies and how new technologies may impact them. She is particularly interested in culinary habits and preferences and digital interactions with food, cultural analytics and disparities and political power and communication strategies.
