Sally A. Applin is a Doctoral Candidate at the University of Kent at Canterbury, UK, in the Centre for Social Anthropology and Computing (CSAC) with a focus on mediated and PolySocial Reality (PoSR). Her current work researches and models the impact of technology on culture, and the consequent inverse: specifically the reifications of Network Space in Personal Space. Sally is concerned with successful human communication and with location-aware systems and how they impact both human privacy and security. Sally holds a Masters degree from the graduate Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU (ITP) and a BA in Conceptual Design from SFSU. Sally has had a 20+ year career in the science museum design, computer software, telecommunications, and product design/definition industries working as a Senior Consultant, Sr. Researcher, Senior UX Designer, and Ethnographer.

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, a member of IoT Council, a think tank for the Internet of Things (IoT), and is a board member of the Edward H. and Rosamond B. Spicer Foundation.
