Michele Martini


Michele Martini’s research is primarily focused on computational social science and specifically on the development of methods for the analysis of unstructured datasets such as texts, videos, images and user interfaces.

Currently a Post-doctoral researcher at the University of Lugano (Switzerland), his work focuses on  the use of new media technologies by religious organizations for proselytization purposes. To this aim, his studies combine media analysis with interviews and ethnographic observations to understand the interaction between online and offline media structures, especially focusing the construction of transnational communities, spiritual experiences and religious leadership.
