Background and activities

I am a researcher at the programme for applied ethics.

My background is in religious studies, social anthropology and philosophy. My research is mostly centred on health and medicine, with particular emphasis on questions regarding the borderlands of life, end of life, and death. I have also conducted research on energy transitions and adoption of new energy technologies.

My interests include

  • Assisted dying
  • The relationship(s) between human and machine
  • Healthcare ethics
  • Ethnographic methods in applied ethics
  • Neoliberalism and individual responsibilisation
  • Technologies in use/practice
  • Corporate responsibility
  • Business and ethics
  • RRI
