Nicholas Nicoli (Ph.D., 2010, City, University of London) is Associate Professor of Communication at the University of Nicosia.
Nicholas believes in holistic democracies that implement sound digital, economic, political and social courses of action. His research focuses on communication policies with the potential to enrich individuals, organizations and societies.
His initial research sought to deconstruct communication and creativity management within public service broadcasters such as the BBC. Thereafter he focused his attention toward the impact of communications policy reform upon strategic communication, public relations and marketing. His current research is concerned with how disinformation spreads and is combated across liberal democracies.
He is heavily involved in the democratisation of ideas through TEDx and startup communities of Europe.
Nicholas is currently co-authoring a book with Professor Petros Iosifidis titled, Digital Democracy, Social Media and Disinformation, to be published in 2020 by Routledge.
