Sally A. Applin is a Ph.D. student in the University of Kent at Canterbury, UK, in the Centre for Social Anthropology and Computing (CSAC). She holds a Masters degree from the graduate Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) within New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, and a BA in Conceptual Design from San Francisco State University. Sally has had a 20 year career in the science museum design, computer software, telecommunications, and product design/definition industries working as a Senior UX designer and ethnographic researcher.

At Kent, Sally is advised by Dr. Michael D. Fischer, Professor of Anthropological Sciences, Director of CSAC, and Director of Enterprise. Dr. Fischer is the founder of Anthropunk, a movement that examines how people promote, manage, resist and endure change; hack their lives (and those of others); and create the context of the individuation of their experiences. Sally is a founding member of Anthropunk and is currently researching the impact of technology on culture, and the consequent inverse: specifically the reifications of Cyberspace in Personal Space. Recently, she created and co-developed an iPad application, "The UnBored Game," that won "Best Social App" at the first iPad Developer Camp in San Jose, CA.
