Originally trained as a Geographer, Susan Halford is Professor of Sociology and for over a decade has worked across the social and engineering sciences. She is well-known for her work as an organizational sociologist, in which she has explored the dynamics of organizational change with particular reference to gender identities, to ageing and - linking both - to the sociotechnical practices and effects of digital innovation in the workplace. Over the past 15 years, her research has focussed more heavily on politics of digital data, artifacts and expertise, with a focus on the place of Sociology in these new knowledge practices.
After a decade of interdisciplinary education and research in Web Science at the University of Southampton, Susan joined the University of Bristol in 2019 and became founding co-Academic Lead for the Bristol Digital Futures Institute. Susan sits on a number of strategic and advisory boards, including the EPSRC Digital Economy Programme Board, the UK Biobank Ethics Advisory Group and is Chair of the ESRC New and Emerging Forms of Data Strategic Advisory Group. Susan is President of the British Sociological Association 2018-21.
