Mia Harrison is a Research Associate at the Centre for Social Research in Health (CSRH) at UNSW. She works as part of the Evidence-Making Interventions in Health program of research, led by Dr Kari Lancaster and Professor Tim Rhodes, with a particular focus on a project exploring evidence-making practices and embodied experiences of COVID-19.

Mia has a background in transdisciplinary research in the field of critical medical humanities and brings mixed method approaches to investigate social, ethical, and philosophical concerns in health and medicine. In particular, Mia's work is informed by research approaches in feminist science and technology studies, medical ethics, cultural studies, and critical disability studies. She is also interested in the value of popular culture in research and pedagogy as a feeling- and affect-inflected mechanism for critical thinking.

In addition to her work at the CSRH, Mia draws upon her background in media production and technology to produce public scholarship through the medium of podcasting.
