I'm interested in ethical issues surrounding emerging data technologies and Artificial Intelligence, in health data and in how new health technologies are taken up in hospitals. Alongside ethnography and more familiar qualitative and quantitative research methods I explore foresight methodologies, performance, speculative design and fictions boht as engagement tools and research methods.

Brief biography

After a BA in English Literature from Oxford I quickly moved into more technical fields, as a digital archivist, a web developer and various research and roles. I did my MSc in Digital Anthropology at UCL and then spent three years working at Nesta with the Futures team and Health Lab.
