The research I conduct is driven by a general interest in the social and structural forces that shape human health and wellbeing. In my ethnographic research I focus particularly on the ways in which domestic conditions affect people’s health and health care seeking practices. My research is collaborative and interdisciplinary, and I am particularly interested in the development of theories and methodologies that can help us to attend to tentative, inchoate, and subdued dimensions of social existence. In this context, I draw inspiration from philosophy, psychoanalytic theory, and art. In my book Haunting Images: A Cultural Account of Selective Reproduction in Vietnam (winner of the Senior Book Prize, 2014 and the Eileen Basker Memorial Prize, 2015), I examine how new technologies for reproductive selection are used by the state as well as by individuals in Vietnam, highlighting how advancing biomedical technologies engage with long-standing patterns of attachment, dependency, and power. My research in Vietnam is based on long-standing relations of collaboration and includes research training and capacity-building.
