Rachel Allison

As of September, 2016, I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Technology & Society Studies at Maastricht University. Here, I am a member of the ERC-funded research project ‘Making clinical sense: A comparative study of how doctors learn in digital times.’ Throughout the course of this project I will conduct ethnographic fieldwork alongside medical students within The Faculty of Medicine at Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary. This research will explore themes of skill, embodied knowledge, and sensory translation, in relation to pedagogical technologies, through an ethnographically grounded approach to empirical data collection.

Prior to moving to Maastricht, I received a Bachelor of International and Global Studies (Anthropology) from The University of Sydney and an MSc. in medical anthropology from the University of Copenhagen.
