New Doctoral Researcher joins CRISP

CRISP would like to welcome its third doctoral student, Roger Von Laufenberg. Roger will be based at St Andrews and is funded by the Big Data Surveillance project. Over the next three years he will be studying Big Data Analytics and changes to marketing practices, focussing on how marketing organisations are making sense of Big Data and to what extent ethical, privacy and societal impacts of Big Data analytics are taken into consideration by the organisation.
