My interdisciplinary research focus has been to examine how language and culture are interrelated in real-life situations, such as medical encounters. Specifically, I integrate theoretical and methodological insights from ethnomethodology, conversation analysis and ethnography to study the interconnections between language and culture in medical interactions.

- 16 July 2019 - As a Visiting Fellow funded by Africa Oxford Initiative (AfOx), in collaboration with The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH), I delivered this talk at All Souls College. Using the methodology of conservation analysis, I examined how doctors negotiate medical authority with patients during HIV consultations in Nigeria. I also examine how this impacts the consultative procedure and patients' adherence to the treatment. More information
