Matthew Bui

Matthew N. Bui (@matthew_bui) is a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow at the NYU Alliance for Public Interest Tech and a research affiliate with CR+DS and the UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry (C2i2). His research examines the potential for, and barriers to, urban data justice, particularly considering the racial politics of data-driven technologies, policy, and platforms. His dissertation draws from critical race theory, urban sociology, and information and communication studies to define, conceptualize, and explore “urban data justice” from a lens of racial justice and community organizing. Currently, he is extending his research as the project lead for a CR+DS project supported by the Democracy Fund. Dr. Bui’s research has also received recognition and support from the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), Urban Communication Foundation, Benton Foundation, Aspen Institute, Annenberg Foundation, and the Research Conference on Communications, Information and Internet Policy (TPRC). Matt received his PhD from the University of Southern California.
