Anne Helmond is assistant professor of New Media & Digital Culture and Program Director of the MA New Media & Digital Culture. Since 2007, Anne has been a member of the Digital Methods Initiative, University of Amsterdam where she focuses her research on social media platforms and apps. Her research interests include software studies, platform studies, app studies, infrastructure studies, algorithms and web history.

In her dissertation on ' The web as platform: Data flows in social media' she has developed the notion of "platformization" to understand the dual logic of social media platforms’ extension into the rest of the web and, simultaneously, their drive to make external web data “platform ready”.
