I lead the academic unit "Service organization and innovation in social work and child welfare", an excellent unit that you can read more about here: service-organization-innovation-social-work-child-welfare.
My PhD project was about General Practitioners' approaches to diagnosis when patients are presenting with 'medically unexplained symptoms' or 'uncertain illness'. Overall, the thesis explores the relationship between knowledge and ambiguity from a sociology of knowledge perspective.
As a researcher and postdoctoral fellow, I explore the development, implementation and uses of social technologies and so-called 'welfare technologies' more broadly, and on the conditions for public-private collaboration in innovation in municipal health and social care. My focus is on the communication tools AV1 and KOMP, both developed by the Norwegian start-up No Isolation to combat loneliness. I am also a work package leader in "Virtual Presence" and lead investigator of "Easy and safe contact with relatives", a collaboration between OsloMet, No Isolation and the Nursing Home Agency in Oslo municipality. In addition, I lead the "REACH Core Group" at the department, which is part of the interdisciplinary research environment REACH, where user-driven and service-oriented research is in focus.
The sociologies of (scientific) knowledge, science, technology, medicine and professions, not to mention theory and theorizing in the social sciences, qualitative research methods and methodology, science studies, cultural sociology and social theory more broadly. And Merton.
