My work draws together insights from Human Geography, Science and Technology Studies (STS) and Social Anthropology. My PhD research on malaria control in Ghana was concerned with the relations between mosquito-parasite-human interactions, health politics and the social ecology of malaria. Currently, my research focuses on the implementation and translation of new health technologies, uneven geographies of access to health care in sub-Saharan Africa, and the conditions and possibilities of co-existence between humans and other-than-humans. In this context I am particularly interested in how we live together with organisms that are harmful to human health.
