El No is a PhD student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Cambridge. Informed by her time working on the design side of data analytics software, she is interested in how different groups of people make sense of, collaborate with, or reappropriate digital technologies. Her doctoral project explores how app-enabled food delivery enacts distinctive mobilities and materialises as infrastructural practices of smart city-making.
Prior to starting her PhD, El worked in management consulting in Seoul, analytics consulting and technology in Seoul and London, and humanitarian aid in Nairobi. She holds a MSc in Media, Communication and Development from the LSE and a BA in Management from Peking University.
