Profile Contents


Lisa Chernenko is a DPhil candidate at the Oxford Internet Institute, Associate Researcher and a Project Lead in the Portulans Institute. Her doctoral research is generously funded by the OII Shirley Scholarship and the OII Dieter Schwarz Foundation Research Programme on AI, Government and Politics. Lisa’s research explores strategies to counteract dehumanisation in hostile intergroup dynamics. Specifically, it is focused on the phenomenon of re-humanisation in online communication.

In the aftermath of Russia’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine, she closely examines the linguistic facets of outgroup dehumanisation and the mechanics of re-humanisation in interactions between Ukrainians, Russians, and Belarusians across digital platforms. Additionally, she delves into factors influencing re-humanisation effectiveness.

Lisa’s previous work addressed network factors in organisational conflict and the potential of digital platforms for conflict optimisation. She has extensive experience in organisational consulting and teaching Data Science and Social Network Analysis.
