I am a PhD candidate at the Universities of Turin and Amsterdam. I studied sociology, philosophy and musicology at the universities of Nantes and Frankfurt am Main. My doctoral research involves ethnographic fieldwork in Ghana and in the Netherlands. It seeks to explore ideals and practices of good living with sickle cell disease, and in particular how bad surprises and moments of crisis participate in shaping life with and care for this chronic illness. My interests are in ethnographic methods, Science and Technology Studies, medical anthropology and feminist approaches to care.
I also co-organise a seminar series, together with prof. dr. Amade M'charek, which is called the ir/relevance of race in science and society, and that addresses the troubling issue of race from different interdisciplinary fields. It takes place at the University of Amsterdam, and you can learn more about it here.
