Carl Miller

Carl is the Research Director of The Centre for the Analysis of Social Media (CASM) at Demos. CASM is Demos’ digital research and technology hub, studying how the rise of the digital world affects our politics, society, and us.

He is the author of around a dozen major reports on the affect of the digital world on society and politics, and how it can be studied. This includes the influence of the internet on radicalisation, policing and counter-terrorism, hate crime and social media, digital situational awareness, digital democracy, and changing identities and beliefs in the digital world.

He is an expert advisor on social media for the Care Quality Commission, the external social media expert for the UK Government Civil Contingencies Secretariat, is a member of the Independent Digital Ethics Panel for Policing, and an external advisor on the current cross-Governmental review on the use of data science within the public sector.
