Primary fields of research
I work in a cross-over between welfare studies and cultural sociology, and I often focus on risk behaviour in a symbolic interactionist perspective.
My PhD thesis focused on drunk driving and drunk drivers' social settings, morality and risk assessment.
While reseaerching for SFI - The Danish National Centre for Social Research, I analyzed the capacity of the social treatment of drug abusers in Denmark. I interviewed more than sixty people (including users, social workers, and bureaucrats).
On 1 September 2014, I began a qualitative analysis of the Danish use of antibiotics in a sociological perspective.
Theoretically, I work somewhere between Foucault and critical theory, relational sociology, identity constructions, and public health science. For instance, I study the use of alcohol and other drugs or medicin as social action in timely circumstances.
