Clara Fernández de Bobadilla graduated as a Social and Cultural Anthropologist at the Complutense University of Madrid. From 2018 to 2021, she worked as a Research Assistant in an international project funded by The National Science Foundation (USA). It compared how egg donation operates in the United States and Spain, investigating how different regulations intersect with donors' decisions and experiences. She completed her master’s in Advanced Studies of Social and Cultural Anthropology with a thesis on the anthropological use of the theoretical concept of ‘identity’ and the idea of its ambiguity. In 2019 she began her doctoral thesis taking into consideration what had been her main interests so far: epistemology, anthropology of knowledge, anthropology of health, and science and technology studies. In the wake of the coronavirus crisis, her initial research proposal -which addressed computational thinking, and the rise of data culture- is adapted to the pandemic situation.
