Dang Nguyen

Dang Nguyen is a second-year PhD candidate in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies (SHAPS) at the University of Melbourne. She is working under the supervision of Associate Professor Michael Arnold (SHAPS) and Associate Professor Richard Chenhall (MSPGH).

Her PhD project investigates the performance of non-biomedical knowledge on the internet. The aim is to understand how digital technologies influence the propagation of knowledge that exists in the margin of scientific knowledge, and how these technologies are transforming non-biomedical cultures as living practices.

Dang has recently been awarded a prestigious Fox International Fellowship, which will see her spend the 2019–2020 academic year at Yale University Graduate School.
