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 and Science and Technology Studies and focuses on translations that these technologies provoke (e.g. new figurations, expectations and creative adaptations).
