Information om forskning och undervisning
I work as a post doc researcher in the project “Data driven society in the making” at the University of Eastern Finland and am a visiting researcher at the University of Helsinki. The project studies implementation of data-driven practices, learning algorithms and artificial intelligence in health care and social services.
My PhD-project, completed in 2019, provides knowledge of the ways how biomedical research, and thus knowledge production, is reorganized through biobanks. I have asked: What kind of knowledge production do biobanks promote and how. I have paid attention to the different ways biobank samples are seen to matter for biomedical research and development: first, through their “high quality”, second, through their “Finnishness” and third, through the expected realization of translational medicine.
My other recent projects have been “Good(s) for Health – Personalized health services and flexible appropriation of bioinformation”. In this project I concentrated on the novel objects of biomedicine and biomedical innovation and collaborative science.
I am qualified teacher and during the past years I have taught STS for both doctoral and master's students as well as bachelor's students. Over the years I have also been responsible for course coordination, literature seminars, and served as visiting lecturer in sociology.
