Dr Sally Atkinson


Postdoctoral Research Associate

I’m a social anthropologist working in the fields of science, technology and biomedicine. My current work examines the interaction of cultural, political and economic structures in the emergence of scientific knowledge and practice.

I am currently working with Professor Susan Molyneaux-Hodgson on a study Responsible Research and Innovation in the DETOX study around synthetic biology and biomanufacturing.

My work combines ethnographic research with interviews, focus-group and document and material culture analysis.
