The study of global health and biological risks has been at the center of my research agenda. I am interested in a broad continuum of biological risks - intentional, accidental, and natural - and how these risks are understood and managed by traditional as well as non-traditional political actors. Through a diverse set of empirical case studies (bioweapons, biotechnologies, biobanks, dual-use research in life sciences, dis-/mis-information about health, and citizen response to the COVID-19 pandemic), I have also explored more conceptual and theoretical questions related to the role of knowledge and expertise in security governance.
