Amelia Fiske holds a PhD in Cultural Anthropology, with a specialization in Medical Anthropology, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She situates her research at the intersection of anthropology, feminist science and technology studies, and medical ethics, crosscut by an interest in non-traditional and decolonial approaches to knowledge production. At the Institute for History and Ethics in Medicine, her work examines the integration of citizen science in biomedicine and biotechnology, ethical concerns surrounding artificial intelligence and robotics in clinical contexts, and the broader context of technology-driven changes in sharing practices, forms of scientific labor, and research organization in medicine and bioscience. This research has been supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).  

In addition, her research addresses the production of harm resulting from oil operations in the Ecuadorian Amazon, with a particular focus on matters of toxicity, exposure science, extractive politics, and environmental justice. Her doctoral thesis received the Manning Dissertation Award and the Honigmann Graduate Prize in Socio-Cultural Anthropology for 2016, and was supported by the Wenner-Gren Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the Social Science Research Council, the Mitchell Foundation of Bowdoin College, the Institute for the Study of the Americas at the University of North Carolina, and the Tinker Foundation.
