Katriina Huttunen

Katriina is a doctoral researcher in sociology and has a background in development studies and gender studies.  She focuses on entanglements of biomedical knowledge production and idea(ls) of development and humanitarian helping. In her ethnographically oriented work, she studies a Nordic-based diarrhea vaccine trial conducted in Benin, and is interested in e.g. how to understand the ethics and politics of the trial, what kinds of ideals and expectations for scientific knowledge prevail and how do they materialize. Her work draws on feminist theories, especially feminist science and technology studies, and postcolonial and decolonial thinking.
