 Of the descriptions of what I do, I have always like 'empirical philosopher' and 'sociologist of organizations as embodied cognitive cultures' best. While I have a PhD in sociology, I do not feel particularly bound within just one discipline. Words like integrative interdisciplinarity might be a good fit. In terms of empricial arenas, I am mainly interested in questions that have to do with how people imagine that they affect the world especially in the areas of biomedicine, digitalization, and bioeconomy. So to give a concise description of my research field, I'd say that I study modes and genres of belonging, participation, and provisioning as embodied, enactive, and extended cognitive cultures as exemplified in biodigitality and bioeconomy as cognitive cultures.

I have joined the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) and the Center for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM) at the University Warwick as 2019-2021 IAS WIRL COFUND Fellow (part of the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions COFUND scheme). I am a visiting faculty at the Paris Institute for Critical Thinking. Iam a chercheur associé with the Global Lega Studies Network at the Fondation Maison des sciences e l'homme (FMSH).
