Bertie Vidgen

In my research I study the drivers and patterns of xenophobic behaviour on social media. I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Oxford and the Alan Turing Institute. Before that, I completed a BA in History and Politics at the University of Warwick (2013) and an MA in Ideology and Discourse Analysis at the University of Essex (2014).
