My research focuses on users of digital health technologies and their generation of personalized health information, particularly those who engage in self-tracking practices for health purposes. My work takes a new materialism approach to understanding the interaction between human and nonhuman actants. Current projects I am working on include: a critical conceptual review of what 'giving voice' to children means in the field of qualitative research; a proposed approach to qualitative research ethics which follows from the post-structuralist work of cultural theorists Deleuze and Guattari; a contribution to qualitative research methodology which reframes reflexivity through the lens of 'self-tracking'; as well as a scoping review of the ethical dimensions of digital data collection with minors.
