Patient Subjectivity

One of my main areas of interest is the impact of health and illness on how subjectivities are constituted. I have primarily explored this through my comparative work on childhood asthma, focusing on how global, neoliberal reforms of health policies are redefining patienthood,  in particular, how we allocate personal and collective responsibility over health, care, and the environment – and the effects of these changes on our experiences of self.

Currently, I am exploring various facets of patient subjectivity in my current project on digital ethics and mental wellbeing.
