Gian Marco Campagnolo is Lecturer in Science, Technology & Innovation Studies at the University of Edinburgh. His research highlights aspects of business knowledge as apparent in client-consultant relationships as well as vendor-user interaction or in special conditions such as IT symposia and software demonstrations. When business turned heavily to analytics, he became interested in data science applications with a view on how 'big data' is made visible and turned into action.
In his latest projects, Gian's research addressed how empirical sociology can contribute to data-intensive research in understanding the evolution of careers in the IT sector. Taken up by the media and presented at The Alan Turing Institute inaugural workshop on Social Data Science, this research led to knowledge exchange with professional networking company LinkedIn.
