Turing Fellowships for Social Sciences academics

Two academics from the Social Sciences Division have been named among 33 University of Oxford researchers as Turing Fellows for 2021/22

Professor Ho-Yin Mak, Associate Professor in Management Science at the Saïd Business School and Professor Scott Hale, Associate Professor and Senior Research Fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute, have been announced by The Alan Turing Institute in a list of 400 Fellows chosen from across 13 partner institutions as established scholars with proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence, or a related field.

Professor Hale commented 'I’m delighted to be continuing my association with The Alan Turing Institute as a Turing Fellow. The most pressing problems in our society such as the spread of misinformation and hateful content require multidisciplinary collaboration across institutions; so, I look forward to working on these challenges in partnership with collaborators at Turing and beyond.'

Professor Mak adds 'being a part of the Turing network is a true delight, I am honoured to have received this fellowship and look forward to leveraging the Turing platform to strengthen the ties between business research with data science & AI.'
