Nanette Bjerring Fournier

Research assistant

My work as a research assistent are tasks tied to Centre for Health Research in the Humanities (CoRe), which includes research and activities in Center for Healthy Aging and the CALM project. I have a background in public health science. During my studies, I have worked with both qualitative and quantitative methods with a focus on qualitative research. Furthermore, I have especially worked with and in the intersections between the ontologies and methodologies of different academic disciplines.

In my master thesis, I did a qualitative study on loneliness among the elderly and investigated the social relation between volunteer visitor (besøgsven) and the elderly being visited (besøgsvært). My main scientific interests are broad concepts of health (social, mental, physical), communication about health issues and how health is practiced, negotiated and understood in everyday life. I am specifically interested in this within the contexts of studies of aging, interdisciplinary collaboration and (science) communication.
