Current research

In July 2016 I embarked upon a project on biometric technologies together with three colleagues. The project, financed by the Velux Foundations, explores the epistemological foundations and the practical and social implications of biometric technologies in the context of migration, as well as migrants’experiences of these technologies. The project therefore integrates both experiences and activities of developers, users and migrants.
