RESEARCH: Making Clinical Sense

My ERC Starting Grant funded project, “The birth of the digital doctor? A comparative anthropology of medical techno-perception” examines the impact of the digital in medicine by studying the role of pedagogical technologies in how doctors learn the skills of their profession.

FOOD

How are we instructed to cook? How are sensory experiences relayed in recipes? What happens when working with recipes sonically, or when a dinner party focuses on sound? This post is series of essays on the sensory practices related to food, cooking and eating.

VIDEOS

Over the last five years I have made several videos about my different research projects, including a taped conversation, a video abstract and a short three minute video. I am looking forward to exploring other possibilities with video soon.

RESEARCH: Listening to sounds in medicine

This project concerns how medical staff are taught, and engage in, listening to sounds (of the patient’s body, of instruments, of the hospital environment), part of a larger research program entitled Sonic Skills: Sound and and Listening in Science, Technology and Medicine.

MEDICAL MUSEUMS

I love medical libraries, with their constant sources of distraction: the latest scientific journals; microbiology textbooks with exquisite photographs; anatomical texts filled with woodcuts and engravings. This essay is about one of my favourite libraries and museums where I once volunteered.

RESEARCH: Genetic testing goes online

This research examines the intersection of two important emerging technologies – genetic testing and the internet – through the case of direct-to-consumer genetic testing. This ever-changing industry raises important questions about participatory medicine, commercialisation of healthcare, genetic narratives and trust.

RESEARCH: Pneumatic tube systems

Since 2010 I have been researching pneumatic tube systems (systems of pipes which transport solid objects by vacuum) on my blog – www.pneumaticpost.blogspot.com – where I file notes about the life of these systems (particularly in hospitals) alongside other postal, medical and museum related discoveries.
