Her research interests lie at the intersection of (scientific) expertise, civil society/ citizens, and policy making, particularly in relation to health structures and practices and encompassing themes like drug use and policy, reproductive rights, and public health more generally. In doing so, she is primarily interested in the perspective, experience, and knowledge of the user, patient, and/or citizen.
