I’m a sociologist interested in HIV, expertise, health policy and activism. I am currently a Research Fellow in the Department of Public Health, Environments and Society at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and a Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for Invention and Social Process (CISP) at Goldsmiths, University of London.
Before moving to LSHTM, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Sociology Department at Goldsmiths, University of London on Disentangling European HIV/AIDS Policies: Activism, Citizenship and Health (EUROPACH). The project was funded by Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) and sought to explore the “uses of the past” in HIV policy and activism.
My work has engaged with the relation between professional and lay expertise, biomedical technologies, clinical practice, sexuality, and the emotional entanglements and responsibilities of qualitative research. My work is situated within Science and Technology Studies (STS), although it’s something of a complicated relationship.
