Dear All,

Apologies if this is a duplicate.

I work on a number of EU- and UK-funded projects in medical informatics. I’m not a data scientist, though. Instead my initial interest is around Ethics and Data Protection, and the tension between the two (I am involved in both at University level). But like Helena, I am also a social scientist and am especially interested in people’s views about technology, data analytics and how this affects their own attitudes towards the use and sharing of their personal data.


On an admin note, is someone keeping track of the various and complementary skills around the virtual table?
