My principle research interest is the role of technologies (in particular information and communication technologies - ICTs) in the use for health care delivery. The ethnographic data of my research comes from (bio)medical contexts in South Africa and more recently from Rwanda. My research can be seen at the intersection of Social Anthropology (in particular medical and political anthropology) and Science and Technology Studies and focuses on the various translations that these technologies provoke (e.g. the production of new figurations, expectations and creative adaptations).
