Dr Selena Nemorin profile picture
  • Lecturer in Sociology of Digital Technology
  • IOE - Culture, Communication & Media
  • UCL Institute of Education

I am a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow and lecturer at the UCL Knowledge Lab, in the Department of Culture, Communication and Media. I hold a PhD in Philosophy of Education and an MA in Educational Foundations (Focus: Moral Philosophy, Art, and Technology).


Before joining UCL, I was a researcher at the Department of Media and Communications, London School of Economics. During this time, I worked on a project that examined socio-technical innovation practices in Europe and their relation to ethics. Prior to this I worked at Monash University (Australia) on an ethnographic study that explored the impact new technologies have on contemporary schools and schooling. 

I have also worked on research projects that addressed issues of educational equity and inclusion; gender, race and education; as well as human rights policies and procedures in K-12, and post-secondary institutions.
