Fabian Braesemann

Departmental Research Lecturer in AI & Work, University of Oxford

Dr Fabian Braesemann is a Departmental Research Lecturer in AI & Work at the OII.

Fabian uses social data science methods to study the digital economy. Before Fabian became a Departmental Research Lecturer at the OII, he worked as a Research Fellow & Data Scientist in the Future of Real Estate Initiative at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, and as a Data Scientist at the OII on projects that applied data science to understand human development and labour markets.

His research has been published in leading academic journals and it was covered in national and international media. Fabian has been presenting the results and implications of his research in keynote talks at academic conferences as well as policy and industry events.

Having worked as a data scientist in industry and academia, Fabian has investigated social processes with a multitude of different online data sets in numerous domains. These experiences make him confident about the prospects and value of social data science as a key discipline in the 21st century – in academic research as well as in policymaking and industry.

Besides his role at Oxford University, he runs a social data startup company – DWG Datenwissenschaftliche Gesellschaft Berlin. The DWG aims to bridge academic knowledge generation and social data science innovation. The company applies data science to generate insights into the digital transformation of markets and it works mainly with the public sector and international development organisations.
