Andres Kõnno started working in the university in 2018 as a lecturer and researcher at the Baltic Film, Media and Arts School of Tallinn University. He defended PhD thesis "The Modelling of Communication and its Applications in a Longitudinal Research: Examples of Estonian, Finnish and Russian Journalism in the 20th Century" in 2015, he also has a background in semiotics and cultural theory (BA and MA). Before starting work in the university he was employed as a data analyst and consultant at the Baltic Media Monitoring Group based in Tallinn. His current research project focuses on the creation of additional metadata layers for the Estonian PSMs (ERR) archive. This research provides better quality for the understanding and interpretation of the Estonian public sphere for the wider audience, but it also will provide knowledge on the interoperability of all public (and possibly also private) archives.
