In my PhD I examine how Danish Nurse students acquire technological literacy. I have conducted ethnographic fieldwork at a Department of Nursing and among nurse students at their clinical internship at Danish hospital wards. I examine processes of becoming a skilled actor in a professional world.… In particular I am interested in how newcomers develop ways to navigate conflicting figured worlds and demanding technologies in contentious spaces of local practice.

I have been a visiting Scholar at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014 where I have visited professor Dorothy Holland.
