‘The Research Ethics Needed for the Big Data / Data Sharing Era’

Prof Natasha Mauthner

Natasha Mauthner is a Professor of Social Science Philosophy and Method, and Director of Research, at the Newcastle University Business School. She leads the Newcastle Methods Hub and is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences. She has held appointments at the Universities of Aberdeen and Edinburgh, and visiting positions at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Carleton University, University of Melbourne, and the University of Canterbury. Natasha’s research explores how feminist science studies and philosophies of science open up new possibilities for the philosophical foundations, methodological approaches and ethical practices used in the social sciences. This work underpins her substantive contributions to a range of fields including gender, work and family; perinatal mental health; the intersection between technology and society; data sharing and big data; qualitative research; and research ethics.
