Sally Wyatt is Professor of Digital Cultures at Maastricht University. She originally studied economics (at McGill University in Canada and the University of Sussex in England). 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). Wyatt has participated in national and international policy-making activities around big and open data. She was part of the committee that prepared the international accord for Science International, called Open Data in a Big Data World (Boulton et al, 2015).
