University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Her research focuses on modelling and explanation in systems biology as well as the epistemic and social implications of personalized medicine and health technologies.

She works as Assistant Professor at the Section for History and Philosophy of Science at Department of Science Education. Moreover, she is part of the research project “Personalized Medicine in the Welfare State”, MeInWe, at the Center for Medical Science and Technology Studies in Copenhagen (PI: Mette Nordahl Svendsen). In this context, she explores how and whether more “precise” health-related knowledge about individuals can be established from data on the many, and how notions of health, disease and the person are shaped through data. Moreover, she is interested in how intensified data sourcing influences biomedical research and health practices.
