PhD David Duenas-Cid as the MSCA Fellow of the Week

Our Assistant Professor at WZIE, David Duenas-Cid has been highlighted as the MSCA Fellow of the Week at the European Union.

David is an H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Widening Fellow and Assistant Professor at the Gdansk University of Technology. He was awarded an MSCA grant to research the "Dynamics of Trust and Distrust creation in Internet Voting". The research uses discourse analysis and in-depth interviews to map the emergence of trust and distrust and the elements that sustain them. He proposes a theoretical frame that presents trust and distrust as related but not symmetrically opposite constructs and, therefore, they can (and should) be approached separately. The findings will shed light on the dynamics of trust and distrust creation that can be further applied to other technologies. He also serves as President of the Thematic Group on Digital Sociology at the International Sociological Association, General Chair at the E-Vote-ID Conference, and Program Chair at the Digital Government Society Conference 2023. His research interests cover aspects related to Digital Sociology, Sociology of Organizations, and Public Administration, particularly focusing on Democracy, Technology, and Elections.”
