Who decides how healthy behaviour is to be digitally measured? Can people oversee all the uses to which their data might be put? Can they opt out of data sharing schemes? Should individuals ever be held financially responsible for their own health? We are using a combination of ethnographic, archival and digital methods to investigate these changes and we will be updating this site regularly by blogging about our research in progress and hosting our published research papers as they are completed. If you would like more information please .
