I’m a sociologist interested in HIV, health activism and clinical practice. I am currently a Research Fellow at the Institute for Global Health at University College London (UCL), where I am working on several projects in the Centre for Clinical Research in Infection and Sexual Health. This includes contributing to the qualitative workpackage on the CASCADE Collaboration on HIV seroconversion; writing up interview data from ‘INTUIT: Interaction Design for Trusted Sharing of Personal Health Data to Live Well with HIV‘; and contributing to a grant proposal on digital health.
Over the course of my research career to date, I have contributed to various projects, including studying experiences of navigating HIV care, HIV activism, the ‘ethics-in-practice’ of research in conflict, HIV self-testing, and health and wellbeing.
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.
