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 focuses broadly on transdisciplinary social studies of health care and medicine and includes the study of evidence appraisal in relation to different knowledges, knowledge standardization and health care improvement, and technology development for inclusive health and employment.


From 2017-2020 I served as a member of Council of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) and I am heavily involved with its STS Making and Doing program.
