Sally Wyatt is Professor of Digital Cultures at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. She originally studied economics (at McGill University in Canada and the University of Sussex in England). She has worked and/or held fellowships in Canada, England, Switzerland and elsewhere in Europe. Her main intellectual affinity is with Science and Technology Studies (STS). For many years, her research has focused on digital technologies, both how they are used by people wishing to inform themselves about health-related issues, and how scholars themselves use digital technologies in the creation of knowledge. Her most recent book, co-authored with Anna Harris and Susan Kelly, is called CyberGenetics. Health Genetics and New Media (Routledge, 2016). The book includes poems by Caoilinn Hughes, and speculative fiction by the authors. It was awarded the Foundation for the Sociology of Health and Illness Book Prize in 2017.
