Charlotte Nørholm, Ph.D at IMC

New PhD at IMC

From 1 October 2021, Charlotte Nørholm is a new PhD student at IMC.

Charlotte holds a MA in Medical Anthropology and Glocal Ethnography from Aarhus University, and she has previously worked as a research assistant at IMC. The PhD project is titled Navigating Chronic Uncertainty: A mixed-methods study on test practices and decision-making during COVID-19 and is funded by the Novo Nordic Foundation and Aarhus University.

Below, Charlotte describes her project:
"My project explores how tests for COVID-19 impact the healthcare system, the society and the individual. In my PhD, I follow the test for COVID-19 on its journey through the healthcare system, from the test center to the lab, and back to the individual, who utilizes the test to make decisions in everyday life. The main aim is to understand the multitude of dilemmas that emerge from test practices and the decision to test, and how tests for COVID-19 are used to manage public uncertainty during the pandemic.

If you like to talk about uncertainty, decision-making, health technologies or your experiences with COVID testing, please reach out or feel free to stop by room 312!"
