    Situated intervention

    In my research, I draw together two activities that are often seen as belonging to different realms: intervening in practices and furthering scholarly understanding of them.

    I consider intervening in health care practices as a mode of scholarly knowledge production and as a method for putting both scholarly and normative attachments at risk. Situated intervention, the theory/method package I've developed for such work, draws upon understandings of healthcare- and medical knowledge practices that stem from my training in Science and Technology Studies while equally putting such understandings to the test.

    My research interests include social studies of (healthcare) markets, the study of standardisation and the production and use of clinical practice guidelines and care pathways, quality and safety, global health, and practices of personalisation and evidence-basing.

    I serve as a member of Council of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) and am heavily involved with its STS Making and Doing program.
