After two years’ work on the project, it is with regret that we say goodbye to Dr Ros Williams, as she takes up a new position at the University of Sheffield. Ros is now a Lecturer in Digital Media and Society at the Department of Sociological Studies. She is currently working on papers attached to the Tracking Ourselves project alongside teaching digital research methods. In 2019, Ros begins a Wellcome Trust research fellowship looking at minority ethnicity stem cell donation in the UK, undertaking ethnographic and digital methods-based research into how racialised communities are engaged in acts of tissue donation.
We thank Ros for all her hard work, and wish her many congratulations and all the best for her exciting new work!
We now welcome Dr Jacob Andrews as Research Associate on the project. Jacob has research experience in healthcare services research, with a particular interest in exploring the use of technology to detect and prevent ill health.
