Research Overview

My research interests have focused on cultures of health care work and issues of learning, knowledge and practice. These interests have manifested themselves in previous studies as a focus on decision making and accountability, patient safety and critical incident analysis, constructions of evidence and expertise, diagnostic work and embodied knowledge, collaborative work in critical care, and human-machine relations in medical work. Theoretically, these interests are informed by science and technology studies, ethnomethodology, workplace studies and medical sociology. Methodologically, my studies have been largely ethnographic but I have also used interviews, focus groups and documentary analysis.
