I am Dr Martin Chorley.
I'm a lecturer at the School of Computer Science & Informatics, Cardiff University.
I’m programme leader for the MSc in Computational and Data Journalism, our innovative joint-honours degree with the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies. I'm co-founder of the South Wales x South West chapter of Hacks/Hackers, we hold meetups in Cardiff and Bristol bringing together journalists and technologists to rethink the future of news and information. I'm also co-organiser of the European Data and Computational Journalism Conference, which was held in Dublin, Ireland in July this year, the second edition of which will be held in Cardiff in 2018. I help run the PyDiff meetups here in Cardiff, and attempt to improve student and staff involvement in the local tech scene.
My research is in the field of Computational and Data Journalism, including examining modern journalism education. I also do research that falls under the umbrella of the Mobile and Bio-Social Computing “group”, mainly analysis of human behaviour as exposed through social network data, and interactions between people, systems and places.
I serve as Deputy Director of Learning and Teaching for the school, as well as Senior Personal Tutor and Student Representative Coordinator for Taught Postgraduate students, and am chair of the Postgraduate Taught Programmes Operations Team.
