Samuel Olaniran

Samuel Olaniran’s research focuses on digital mis/disinformation and on the different forms of interpreting the appropriation of technology in different contexts. He is interested in how audiences in the Global South interact with global phenomena in unique ways that are distant from global framings. He is also interested in identifying coordinated inauthentic behaviour on social media using open source intelligence tools. He is completing his PhD in Media Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.
