sanna portrait bangladeshSanna Ojanperä, a first-year DPhil student at the Oxford Internet Institute and a member of Green Templeton College, has been awarded a Future of Work Fellowship by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). This prestigious opportunity supports innovative research relating to labour issues in economics, statistics, sociology, and other social sciences. Sanna, also a doctoral student at the Alan Turing Instite, researches the development impacts of digital economies, specifically the relationship between accessing work through online platforms and informality.

Sanna is very excited about the opportunity, as the OECD initiative on the Future of Work operates in the intersection of development research and policy. As a scholar in international development, she hopes to make contributions in both academia and in the policy and practitioner sphere. In the course of the fellowship, she is hoping to learn from her OECD mentor as well as build lasting relationships with the researchers involved in this work at the OECD and in the larger research network. Sanna also looks forward to publishing an OECD working paper as a great opportunity to get started on her planned first paper for her integrated thesis studying the networked nature of the online labour market in the emerging digital economy. She is excited to be working on these topics at GTC given the College’s multidisciplinary focus on human welfare and specific research efforts in the Future of Work programme and related to emerging markets.

Sanna is mentored by Neave O'Clery of the Mathematical Institute and GTC's own Mark Graham (Oxford Internet Institute) and Felix Reed-Tsochas (Saïd Business School). You can read more about her research and the Fellowship here.
