Computational social scientist

PhD, P.D.

I am Petter Törnberg, Assistant Professor in Computational Social Science at University of Amsterdam, senior researcher at University of Neuchatel, and Associate Professor in Complex Systems at Chalmers University of Technology.


My research is on how digital technology is reshaping our politics, media and cities. I use computational methods and digital data to critically examine the consequences of datafication, platformization, and AI,.

I have published over 50 peer-reviewed articles and chapters, in journals such as PNAS, New Media & Society, and Big Data & Society.

My recent book is Intimate Communities of Hate: Why Social Media Fuels Far-Right Extremism
