Sami Nenno

Sami Nenno is a doctoral researcher in the Public Interest AI research project at HIIG. In his research, he focuses on different aspects of disinformation. One of the aims in his PhD project is to shed light on the role of disinformation in public discourse. Additionally, he is investigating which fact-checking processes can be automated to support the work of fact-checking organisations.

In addition to his doctorate, Sami is studying Data Science in the Master’s programme at the Berlin University of Applied Sciences and Technology. Previously, he studied philosophy at the University of Vienna (B.A.) and at the Humboldt University Berlin (M.A.). In his master thesis he developed an approach to describe temporal perception and experience by means of mathematical logic using the example of movies.

Before, he worked as an analyst for a media surveillance company for more than a year and studied computer science and mathematics at the Humboldt University for a few semesters.
