I take a Vygotskian approach to personal informatics, looking at how self-tracking data can scaffold social and emotional learning. Specifically, I explore how school-based social contexts like group discussions can support meaning-making around personal data and engage with issues that are raised, for example around health norms.
I grew up in Moscow and teach English in a secondary school. I organize Camp Quest UK, a philosophy summmer camp. I'm an active member of the Quantified Self community.
