I am a philosopher and sociologist and engage in theoretical and empirical studies. My current research is focussed on the politics of life science governance, concepts of identity, clinical translation in biomedicine. The main theoretical themes are the interrelationships between power, knowledge, institutions and subjectivity.
I graduated from the University Frankfurt on Main and completed my Ph.D. at the TU-Darmstadt. In 2002 I came to Exeter to work at the ESRC Centre for Genomics in Society, of which I was a Co-Director from 2009-2012.
