Rodessa joined the department as a Research Associate in September 2023 and is currently involved in EU and third-party-funded projects, specifically in AI in healthcare research.

Rodessa earned her BA in Sociology and MA in Industrial Relations from the University of the Philippines. In February 2023, she obtained her Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s degree in Digital Communication Leadership with a specialization track on Digital Policy and Innovation in Europe from Universität Salzburg and Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

Rodessa is currently writing her PhD in Science and Technology Studies; her research revolves around the critical reflection of the value of big data, delving into the socio-technical complexities of data infrastructure and exploring ways to materialize the environmental footprint of our digital activities in a datafied society.
