Voltaire: Judge people by their questions, rather than their answers.
I am interested in how medical- and health (care) cultures are constructed. I have a strong passion for qualitative research and feel that qualitative research is indispensable to a complete understanding of health care issues.
My background is culture studies with a specialisation in science and technology studies (STS). I am particularly interested in questions concerning the dissemination and use of knowledge. One of the issues I have been studying concerns the question what constitutes as evidence in arriving at a certain diagnosis or treatment, including the technology used.
Skills: qualitative research methods, ethnography, policy analysis, ethical analysis, discourse analysis, philosophy of science and technology, co-creation and co-design.
Interests, among others: patient participation, diagnostic process, health literacy, medical technologies, patient-doctor relationships.
