PhD Title: Enactments of HIV in an HIV outpatient clinic: a study of practices, knowledges and experiences of HIV treatment in the presence of biomedical technologies. 
My doctoral project explores the multiple ways in which HIV care is practiced in a London outpatient clinic. That is, it is interested in processes in which treatment and care are delivered and received and the emergent nature of relations between human and nonhuman actors that come together in those processes. Predominantly, it is concerned with the negotiations that must take place in order for HIV to be enacted as a chronic condition – the ultimate goal of HIV treatment and care. My research methodology is rooted within the field of Science and Technology Studies and its intersections with medical sociology. The project is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. In addition, it was awarded with Phil Strong Memorial Prize by The British Sociological Association.
