Academic Interests

I am a social anthropologist with strong current interest in medicine (in rheumatology in particular), and in diseases, pharmaceuticals, and doctor-patient-interaction.

My PhD project is based on fieldwork in a Norwegian health institution, and examines the making of meaning and medical knowledge in doctor-patient interaction.

I have previously done fieldwork in Japan, where I studied the role of bodily practices in the making of hierarchy.
