Dr. Martinisi joined the Academy for Digital Entertainment as a full time Lecturer in Media Research Methods in 2017. He is specialised in data-driven reporting, science communication and quantitative research methods. Dr. Martinisi obtained his PhD from the School of Media and Communication at The University of Leeds in the UK.
Over the last years he led seminars at the universities of Sheffield and Leeds in the UK on polls reading, public opinion, globalisation, evidence-based journalism and audience analysis.
His personal line of teaching follows mainly one direction: evaluate numbers, interpret the data and use them in the applied context of media and journalism. He believes in the pedagogical value of the teaching practice, where "pedagogic" means what the Greek etymology of the word suggests: to patiently accompany the student through a gradual understanding of the subject taught. Never as in quantitative methods, patience is a key component. His classes are hands-on and focused on 'learning by doing".
As a researcher, Dr. Martinisi's main strand of research rotates around the role statistics and data play in the digital society and the role of law and ethics in data-driven news reporting. He is also interested in the De-Westernization of Communication Sciences; in this sense his research looks at what contribution Asian cultures can bring into the Western perspective on media democracy and accountability.
