Teaching Fellow in Philosophy of Medicine, UCL

I am currently a teaching fellow in philosophy of medicine at UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies. My research is mainly focused on methodological and epistemic questions regarding scientific and medical practices. In my PhD thesis, I looked at how the socio-economic and political context of Human African Sleeping Sickness (Trypanosomiasis, HAT) shapes medical responses and biomedical research. I developed pragmatic pluralism to assess benefits of employing multiple scientific approaches to explore and explain phenomena in a given context.
