Research Interests

Research fields: Women’s health, medical technologies, social media, digital protest & lived experience.

My current research focuses on understanding the harms experienced by a group of women implanted with a defective contraception device called Essure. More specifically, it is interested how the women use a private Facebook page to discuss and subvert these harms by creating knowledge of their medical issues. As a result, many women encounter difficulty accessing medical treatment, with healthcare professionals misdiagnosing or disbelieving their accounts of their health issues. This brings into question the value of lived experience in opposition to scientific knowledge within the medical sphere.
