Peter Andringa started his career as a hybrid journalist/engineer, building interactive digital stories and covering data-driven beats like elections and COVID-19 at The Guardian and The Washington Post.
In grad school, Peter has been exploring the structural conditions that enable journalism: particularly focusing on how technology, policy, and law change the ways the news is reported and consumed.
This past year, he completed the MSc in Social Science of the Internet at the Oxford Internet Institute, writing a thesis on journalistic email newsletters to study how the cultures and affordances of an emerging platform affect the news on it.
At the Blavatnik School, Peter is excited to focus on technology policy, understanding how emerging regulations of the internet might impact journalism and free expression, in ways both intended and not.
Peter is a Rhodes Scholar.
