I try to get a better and firmer understanding of organizational, learning and educational implications of technological arrangements that intend to streamline, qualify and develop clinical work and patient /citizen care through involvement and standardization. I am particularly interested in de-centered health practices that aim to increase patients'/citizens’ active involvement and responsibility in relation to their own treatment and care, for example, tele-rehabilitation, feeding assistance robots, various forms of self-monitoring, home care and patient education. I work empirically and analytically to understand the local implications of global initiatives and dissemination of smart technologies (in Denmark; welfare technologies). I seek to understand technological devices as shaped by broader trends, policy and care ecology, rather than as singular, local and limited efforts. Theoretically and analytically, I find inspiration in medical anthropology, various forms of practice theory and science and technology studies. Methodically, I work qualitatively and particularly with ethnographic methods and have ambitions to contribute to the development of these traditions.
