    Amelia Fiske is a Senior Research Associate at the Institute for the History and Ethics of Medicine at the Technical University of Munich (Germany). She was trained as a cultural anthropologist and has been working in interdisciplinary bioethics settings since 2017. Her work is situated at the intersection of cultural anthropology, science and technology studies, graphic art, social medicine and bioethics, and environmental humanities. Prior to arriving at the TUM, She received her PhD in cultural anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (USA), held a postdoctoral position at Kiel University (Germany), and conducted extensive field research in Ecuador and Latin America. She has over a decade of experience conducting interdisciplinary qualitative and ethnographic research in two broad arenas: 1) anthropological and critical social science approaches to bioethics, artificial intelligence, and digital and sociotechnical changes in knowledge production; 2) ethnographic attention to issues of socio-ecological justice, experiences of toxicity in the context of extraction, participatory research methods, and graphic arts.
