I am a UWC alumni and a second-year student at the University of St Andrews. I am pursuing a degree in Social Anthropology and Psychology and I am interested in how these subjects can inform intercultural processes and inspire social change. My Laidlaw research is in Anthropology, where I am researching the process of datafication of individual's health information shared on self-tracking applications. In many cases, the ownership, analysis and utilization of such data can mean that sensitive information about individuals' bodies is commodified and implemented into large data networks. However, the usage of these technologies also offers space for individual agency. I wish to explore the relationship between individual agency and power structures within the process of datafication of health information.
