Dr Aleksei Turobov

Research Associate

Dr Aleksei Turobov is a Research Associate working on the AIxGeo project at the Bennett Institute for Public Policy.

His research centres around the nexus of AI policy, politics, and the interconnection between ‘security’ and ‘digital’, with a focus on the social and political effects and impacts. Additionally, he is interested in evaluating the UK’s attempt at securitising Artificial Intelligence (and the contradiction between technology regulation and security regulation) using machine learning.

He was previously a Postdoctoral Fellow in Cybersecurity and Technology Policy at Northumbria University, where he explored how the digital sovereignty narrative shapes and influences UK politics in the face of geopolitical tensions and post-Brexit challenges.

Aleksei holds a doctoral degree in Political Sciences from HSE University, Russia, where he developed his thesis on security transformation under the influence of digitalisation and automation technologies (notably Artificial Intelligence).
