Niels van Doorn is the principal investigator of the ERC-funded Platform Labor project (2018-2023), which investigates how digital platforms are transforming labor, social reproduction and urban governance in post-welfare cities. He is also an assistant professor in new media & digital culture at the University of Amsterdam, where he teaches on topics such as platform capitalism, digital labor, internet-mediated intimacies and sexualities, and new media theory. For the past decade, his research has been guided by two main questions: how do people sustain themselves and each other in precarious circumstances; and how does the notion of value come into being at the intersection of political and moral economies? Before starting his Platform Labor project, Niels was a research fellow at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS).
