About me

Hi! I am Pablo Aragón, research scientist at the Data Science & Big Data Analytics unit in Eurecat, Centre Tecnològic de CatalunyaMy research focuses on understanding social and political phenomena through the analysis of data from the Internet. I am particularly interested in characterizing online participation in civic technologies, the online network structures of grassroots movements and political parties, and the technopolitical dimension of networked democracy. These interests have led me to participate in EU funded research projects like DECODE, in which we are building free open-source infrastructures to increase data sovereignty of European citizens, or D-CENT, in which we contributed to transform everyday democratic decision making through free open-source digital technologies.

I was also a doctoral researcher at the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning research group in Universitat Pompeu Fabra, a visiting scholar at the Oxford Internet Institute (University of Oxford) and a collaborator of public institutions:

These collaborations extend the work done as a co-founder member of the research network DatAnalysis15M (book here, free content here). My research activities include my services at the Program Committee of:

and the review of journals articles in:

I am also an Adjunct Professor at Universitat Pompeu Fabra for the Discrete Mathematics course (Bachelor’s degree in Mathematical Engineering on Data Science) and the Participatory platforms and social network visualization course (Master’s degree in Data and Design). In addition, I co-supervised the MSc thesis:

I have also been invited as guest lecturer at:

Prior to my academic career I worked for two years as a data engineer designing backend systems for social media monitoring processes in a startup company.


I am currently pursuing a PhD in Information and Communication Technologies at Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I obtained a MSc in Artificial Intelligence at Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia – UNED in 2016, and a BSc+MSc in Computer Science & Engineering at Universidad de Zaragoza in 2010, which included a full year as an exchange student at Luleå Tekniska Universitet. I also attended the 1st Summer School on Methods for Computational Social Science and the 1st Summer School of the Network of Excellence in Internet Science.
