My PhD project is focused on embodiment and sociality from a phenomenological point of view, and I aim at integrating empirical and theoretical approaches to better understand the social aspects of cerebral palsy. My starting points are the developments of Husserl and Merleau-Ponty, and embodied cognitive science.
Part of my research takes place in collaboration with the Helene Elsass Center, in Copenhagen.
