Noemi Festic has been a Senior Research and Teaching Associate in the Media Change & Innovation Division, Department of Communication and Media Research (IKMZ), University of Zurich since February 2022.


In her doctoral dissertation, Noemi Festic investigated how Internet users navigate their (digital) lives in an online environment increasingly dominated by algorithmic selection applications. Her main research interests include: What significance do AS applications have for different life domains in Switzerland? How aware are Internet users of specific algorithmic modes of operation and associated risks, and what do they do to cope with them? How can the application of new "computational" methods contribute to a better empirical understanding of Internet use in general and algorithmic selection in particular?
