Open Knowledge International

Danny is a researcher working with Open Knowledge International were he also coordinates OKI’s research. His interests focus on the politics of data, audit cultures and evidence-based politics, open science and the social effects of quantification. Danny dedicates his research primarily to understand the social construction of data infrastructures. Thus he seeks to gain answers how information systems can better represent the issues of civil society.

Danny works on several projects in various positions, among others as research lead for the Global Open Data Index. His recent work with OKI reflects on citizen-generated data and how statistical activism can become a tool to change or complement official statistics; the action repertoires of civic organisations to use open data, open data impact, as well as data ecosystems.

Before joining Open Knowledge International Danny worked as journalist, editor and research assistant at the University of Amsterdam and Fraunhofer Society. Among others, he studied different typologies of sharing platforms, how they affect labour conditions, as well as the effects of ICT innovation on knowledge work.
