Primary fields of research
Medical anthropology and Medical Science and Technology Studies
My research explores how medical technologies and clinical practices shape our understandings and experiences of health and illness. I do ethnography in health care settings, exploring how personhood and the value of life are constituted in the everyday clinical practices in the Danish welfare system. My PhD research concerned how life's worth is practiced and experienced in the field of dementia, including both clinical and care settings.
Currently, I am Assistant Professor at the Section for Health Services Research, Department of Public Health. My current research explores how personalized medicine is realized within cardiology in the Danish health care system. This research project forms part of the larger project 'Personalized Medicine in the Welfare State', MeInWe, headed by Professor Mette N. Svendsen. Read more about MeInWe here.
