The research project conducted by Anna Dupak, MA ‘SES’ graduate, explores the experience of students in using digital devices for tracking personal (e.g. biometric) data. The purpose of the presented study is to analyse what is the role of digital self-tracking in healthcare practices of students from Russia and Europe. Supported by the CGES, Anna visited Germany and conducted a series of in-depth interviews with German and European students of Ludwig-Maximilian-University of Munich and Technical University of Munich. Applying this method, she managed to overview different strategies of self-tracking and to identify the language (discourse/terminology/etc.) students tend to use to describe their tracking experience.
The results of this study were published in CGES Working Papers series.
