Back to overview

Jason Pridmore is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Media and Communication at Erasmus University Rotterdam. His research interests are focused primarily on practices of digital identification, the use of new/social media and consumer data as surveillance practices, and digital (cyber) security issues. He has written extensively on marketing practices and information exchange and participates in research focused on privacy, data ethics, mobile devices, policing practices, citizenship, branding and quantified self movements. Jason currently participates in an advisory capacity for a range of European Union Research projects and Dutch funded projects on new technologies, privacy, and security issues. He is co-editor of Digitising Identities: Doing Identity in a Networked World published by Routledge press.

Prior to joining the department, he was the Senior Researcher on the DigIDeas project based in Maastricht, the Netherlands. This project examined the social and ethical implications of digital identification, with his research focusing specifically on consumer identity and identification practices and the use of new media in marketing practice. Jason received his PhD from the Department of Sociology at Queen’s University, Canada, in 2008. Before moving to the Netherlands, he worked as a Post-Doctoral fellow as part of The New Transparency Project within the Surveillance Studies Centre at Queen’s University.
