New research project, starts 2014: Tracking biodata – sharing and ownership

I have just secured funding from the RCUK Digital Economy Nemode network for my new research project Tracking biodata: sharing and ownership. The project examines social and policy implications of emerging models of sharing and ownership, in relation to the use of personal data & biodata for medical research and other purposes. It focuses on online services of personal data analytics and self-tracking, and will involve interviews and participant observation with specific Silicon Valley internet start-ups & Quantified Self actors in the San Francisco area. The project is attached to a research placement at the Science and Justice Research Center, University of Santa Cruz, starting in January 2014.

The project will have its own, designated webpage, so watch this space!
