Dr Ash Watson is a sociologist and writer interested in fiction, futures, data and zines.

She’s a postdoctoral research fellow with the Vitalities Lab, UNSW Sydney, working on an ARC-funded project exploring how people make sense of/with data-generating technologies now and for the future. A leader in sociological fiction and creative research methods, some of her current projects focus on zine cultures and digital queerness/community-building. Her PhD was awarded in late 2018. To get in touch, tweet @awtsn or email ashleigh.watson@unsw.edu.au.

Pre-order her debut novel Into the Sea, coming June 18 with Brill.
