My name is Oleg Litvinski. I'm a PhD student at CIRST ('Centre interuniversitaire de recherche sur la science et la technologie'), a research centre primarily dealing with the issues around STS and associated with UQAM ('Université du Québec à Montréal'), in Montreal, Canada.
My research topic is about how an algorithm as a part of digital data platform and everyday life, may become an understandable and familiar, how an algorithms evolve from society at large to research facilities, and industries.
More broadly, my interests are around technology and infrastructure, organizations and institutions especially geographically constrained (urban).
My (previous) background was in ICT (information and communication technologies) while by now I'm moving toward social and human sides of STS.
My research experience consists of a few conference-type papers and I'll note qualitative and interpretative analysis without neglecting other kinds of research approaches (e.g., systematic literature review, mixed-method, multi-method) among my preferred modes of collaboration and cooperation.
Finally, my motivation for joining this workshop is precisely to establish a contact for possible cooperation and collaboration.
