Sam Muller is a PhD candidate at the University Medical Center Utrecht's Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care's subdepartment of Medical Humanities. With a background in Political Science and Public Administration and Organisational Science, his previous research concerned the topics of public administration, political theory, governance and climate policy.

Sam's PhD research intersects the fields of the social sciences, law and medical ethics/bioethics. His doctoral research forms part of the working package addressing the governance, ethical and legal implications of IMI's BigData@Heart project. His research focuses primarily on the governance and ethical challenges arising within the context of Big Data-driven health research. The central pursuit of his research is to pave the way for organising responsible, legitimate and sustainable governance for health data research by conducting interdisciplinary theoretical analysis and empirical research. In doing so, he addresses the topics of:

  • Critical data and algorithm studies
  • Social licence for morally demanding research
  • Experimentalist, algorithmic and collaborative governance
  • Learning accountability
  • Patient and public involvement and co-creation.
