Emma Garnett

Research Fellow




Current research interests include social studies of science and technology, environmental health knowledge making and data practices.

My PhD research drew on Anthropology and Science and Technology Studies (STS) to examine different techno-scientific practices which produce air pollution data, exploring the ways in which these were managed and co-ordinated to make claims about health. Based on three years ethnographic fieldwork with an interdispclinary public health project, I traced the local meaning of research, but also its implications, as part of a wider ensemble of environmental health and policy relations.
