I’m a sociologist interested in HIV, expertise, health activism and clinical practice. I am currently a Research Fellow in the Department of Global Health and Development at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and the Institute for Global Health at University College London (UCL). In my current role at UCL, I am contributing to the qualitative workpackage on the CASCADE Collaboration on HIV seroconversion.
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.
