Johanna Hunt is a first year DPhil researcher and Associate Tutor at the University of Sussex, and a Research Assistant in Algorithms at the University of Hertfordshire.

Her research is concerned with investigating the community of Agile Systems practitioners. She is particularly looking at notions of identity, boundary, communication and space as demonstrable in conversational storytelling and personal narratives from this practitioner-group.
