Amelia Hassoun's research analyses the design, development, and usage of sensor technologies embedded in Singapore’s urban landscape as part of its Smart Nation project, as well as the social life of the data they produce.
Amelia Hassoun’s current focus is on smart home technologies. This project builds upon her Master’s research at UCL on life cycles of software systems that process patient data in the NHS, as well as research (with UCL’s Why We Post project) on communication technologies in hospice care while an undergraduate at Yale. Before re-entering the wild world of academia, she worked as a patient website developer in London.
