Prof Dr Sally Wyatt, Ph.D. (S.M.E.)
Wyatt has worked on the social aspects of digital technologies for many years. She is particularly interested in the internet and social exclusion and the ways in which people incorporate the internet into their practices for finding health information.
Together with Andrew Webster, she was founding co-editor of a book series, Health, Technology and Society published by Palgrave Macmillan.
Wyatt has received major research grants from the Dutch Research Council, the UK Economic and Social Research Council and the Canadian Social Science and Humanities Research Council. She has acted as an adviser to the European Commission’s Science in Society programme as well as to several European research councils interested in establishing and/or evaluating social science research about new information and communication technologies.
At present, Wyatt is working on two NWO-funded research projects. One is about the role of AI in image-based clinical decision making (RAIDIO) with Flora Lysen and colleagues from University Medical Centre Utrecht. The second is about bias in media recommender systems (TAIM) with colleagues from the Department of Advanced Computer Science, UM, the University of Amsterdam, and the media company RTL. Within FASoS, Annika Richterich and Daniella Pauly Jensen are involved.
