Biography

I have an MA in philosophy (specialization in health and culture) from Universite Jean Moulin Lyon 3, France and a PhD in social anthropology from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. My doctoral dissertation was on the topic of clinical-ethical and existential issues in intensive care, with particular focus on personhood, dignity-in-practice, and the making of a good death in this high-tech, critical context.

Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University Of Glasgow in the End Of Life Studies Group, working on the Wellcome Trust Project “Global Challenges at the End of Life”. I am moreover involved in the GCRF funded study “Assessing Quality and Outcomes in a Community Form of Palliative Care Delivery in Kerala, India”.
