Farzana Dudhwala


Postdoctoral Researcher in Digital Health

I am currently involved in research within the Digital Health team in HERG. I am part of the INQUIRE project team, where we are trying to understand how online patient feedback and experiences may be used to improve the quality of NHS services.

My theoretical and methodological interests are in the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS), specifically theories of agency, performativity, multiplicity, and enactment, and qualitative methodologies such as ethnography. 

I have an undergraduate degree in Social and Political Sciences from the University of Cambridge and an MPhil in Innovation, Strategy, and Organisations from the Judge Business School, also at the University of Cambridge.

I did my PhD at the University of Oxford at the Saïd Business School, and it involved a four year ethnography with the ‘Quantified Self’ to understand the ways in which self-monitoring and self-quantifying technologies are implicated in the ‘doing’ of the self.

I am a member of the strategic advisory group of the Association for Studies in Innovation, Science and Technology (AsSIST-UK), and on the steering group committee of the Post-Graduate Forum for Science, Technology, Innovation and Society (PF-STIS).
