Linda Madsen is currently working on a PhD on avian influenza with a special focus on Turkey. She is interested in the global governance of emerging infectious diseases. Like other emerging transboundary infectious diseases avian influenza is surrounded by uncertainty. A main concern in her project is to study the process of knowledge production related to the nature of avian influenza (HPAI/H5N1), and the circulation and translation of knowledge in the space between the local and the global. She draws on resources from STS and social sciences, and her work is based on a combination of multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork, interviews and textual analysis.
Linda Madsen holds a MA degree in Science, Society and Technology Studies (ESST) from the University of Oslo and Istanbul Technical University. Her background is from social sciences, primarily anthropology and development studies.
