Mikkel Flyverbom’s main research interests concern how digital technologies shape communication and governance processes in organizational settings. His research addresses how the Internet has emerged as a key concern in global politics, how ‘big data’ relates to knowledge production and the politics of transparency, how transparency ideals shape the Internet domain, and how power and transparency intersect. Mikkel works both empirically and conceptually on these issues, currently focusing on two projects:

  • Digital technologies and visibility management: This project seeks to conceptualize transparency and other ways of seeing, knowing and governing as forms of visibility management.
  • Datafication and anticipatory governance: Big data and algorithms play increasingly important roles in attempts to predict, measure and govern, and this new project looks at how organizations such as Internet companies, think tanks and international organizations turn digital traces into actionable and anticipatory knowledge.
