Research profile

I am sociologist with a special interest in the analysis of social and embodied interaction and the use and design of (interactive) technologies in and for interaction, such as robots and AI. My theoretical background is rooted in the interpretative paradigm of sociology, especially ethnomethodology and practice theory, which I combine with insights from the field of technology studies, disability studies, organization studies, and participatory design. I mainly use qualitative methods such as video/ethnography and multimodal interaction analysis. In my research I have a strong focus on interdisciplinary collaboration as well as collaboration with external partners.
