Fredericiagade 18, 1310 København K
I am a postdoctoral researcher at Medical Museion, the Department of Public Health, University of Copenhagen, and also affiliated with the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Medicine (reNEW). My position involves research, teaching, and museum work.
I am particularly interested in emerging biomedical technologies and research fields, their perceived promissory potentials, and their possible implications for how people understand their bodies, selves, and health. My research interests also evolve around how museum and exhibition practices can facilitate encounters between publics, research participants, and research findings, while also addressing issues of care and ethics in such encounters. I primarily use qualitative methods.
My current project investigates stem cell technologies through the hopes articulated by people participating in clinical trials. This project is part of reNEW.
My doctoral project (to be defended in 2023) explored the emerging field of microbiome research through personal experiences of how gut and psyche connect. The project also explored the language used to depict promissory potentials of microbiome research. The project is part of the research project Microbes on the Mind, funded by the Velux Foundation.
