I am a medical anthropologist. My research deals with medical genetics and genomics, mainly in the Arabian Peninsula but also in France. I combine medical anthropology and an STS approach to work about the ways in which patients, families, (public) health professionals and researchers create and/or travel the worlds of genetics. I also focus on the history and place of genetics and genomics within global health.

Fieldsites

1/ in the Arabian Peninsula (Oman, United Arab Emirates), my work focuses on the interactions between public health, clinical genetics and research in human genetics;

2/ in France, Catherine Bourgain, Ashveen Peerbaye and I study how the massive introduction of genomic technologies and knowledge modifies the way professionals and patients collectively make sense out of cancer. In this context, we co-organise a research seminar at the EHESS Paris: “Transformations of cancer in the era of health capitalism and globalised genomics”.

Collaborative frameworks of my research

- Making sense of cancer in the genomics era (2019-2021, dir. Catherine Bourgain, funding: French National Cancer Institute)
- From International to Global: Knowledge, Diseases, and the Postwar Government of Health - (2014-2019, dir. Jean-Paul Gaudillière ; funded by the European Research Council). In Globhealth, I was responsible for the part on medical genetics and supervized several colleagues: Mandy Geise (doctoral student) in Mexico, Sameea Ahmed Hassim (postdoctoral student) in Cuba, and Lucile Ruault (postdoctoral student) working on the recent history of genetics at WHO.

Doctoral supervision (with Jean-Paul Gaudillière)

Mandy Geise, “Global medicine and local public health: International organisations and the development of medical genetics in Mexico”.
