Tyr Fothergill

Dr. Tyr Fothergill is a Research Fellow in Ethics Support and Researcher Awareness on the Human Brain Project in the Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility, Faculty of Technology at De Montfort University. Tyr originally trained as a palaeopathologist studying signs of disease and injury in skeletal remains from archaeological sites, but her interest in the processes and nature of research and innovation led to a shift in personal research focus. Tyr is interested in data ethics, technology ethics and neuroethics; ethics communication and outreach; responsible data governance; archaeological insights into human-nonhuman relationships in digital environments; neuroscience history; and developing a temporally-contingent framework for researcher reflection within Responsible Research and Innovation. Tyr is also an Auroran (Women in Leadership in HE) with interests in intersectionality, representation, and equality issues.
