Francisca Grommé is part of the Organisational Dynamics in the Digital Society programme as an assistant professor. She works from a background in science and technology studies (STS), political science and digital sociology. Her research focusses on digitalisation in relation to organisational knowledge practices: how digitalisation changes the way data are collected, analysed and verified by the state and in the digital economy. Francisca is interested in what comes to count as ‘good knowledge’ for governance, who decides on his, and how this changes power relations between citizens and the state and between professions. Francisca approaches these topics mainly ethnographically: by studying everyday practices in organisations such as public transport, municipalities and statistical offices. Prior to working at Erasmus University she worked at TNO, Goldsmiths, University of London, and the University of Amsterdam.
