Dr. Zach Bastick is an expert on digital migration studies and digital politics. His research focuses on how technology empowers and disempowers, and how it might better serve communities and marginalized populations. At Oxford, he is investigating the digital exclusion of irregular migrants, including their attitudes towards technology and exposure to misinformation. He is also analysing how municipalities respond to the presence of irregular migrants from the perspectives of technology, social services, and multi-level governance. Dr. Bastick has held positions at Harvard University, the European University Institute, the Sorbonne University, UC Berkeley, and Sciences Po Paris, among other institutions.
