Dan Artus


PhD Student


Dan is a PhD student in digital and medical anthropology studying HPV vaccination in the Republic of Ireland. His research explores the reconfiguration of knowledge, expertise and power through complex infoscapes that create the social and material life of HPV. Engaging with public health groups, local communities and a variety of vaccine sceptical groups, he is interested in the information practises and complex local and national dynamics that underpin the drop and recovery of HPV vaccine uptake across the country since 2015. Prior to his PhD, he gained a distinction in his MSc in Digital Anthropology at University College London and worked with the Extreme Citizen Science group as a research assistant. He has a professional background in data analytics and architecture and an undergraduate degree in Theology from Oxford University Regent’s Park College. His wider research interests focus on the gender, sexuality, politics, religion and philosophies of science and technology.
