Short presentation

I am a PhD candidate at the Centre for Gender Research.

In my project Gender, Embodiment and Technology, I pay particular attention to how gender is mobilised in a technologised context by drawing on three case studies. The case studies include an analysis of gender in relation to different robots, such as the wearable robots called exoskeletons.

I am also the Equal Opportunities Officer at the Centre for Gender Research and take part in the research group Technologization of the Everyday.
