Postgraduate Research Student, Faculty of Social Sciences
Aleksandra's academic background is in applied linguistics, social anthropology and journalism. Before embarking on her PhD studies at the University of Nottingham Aleksandra had a career as a journalist and editor in major Polish print media outlets where she specialised in issues related to health policies, patients' rights, and health and medicine. In her PhD project Aleksandra draws on her previous academic and professional expertise in health, medicine and society to investigate the impact of research in the field of foetal programming on understandings of health and disease.
Aleksandra's research interests lie at the intersection of Science and Technology Studies and the anthropology of science, and she analyses the biomedical sciences, especially human reproduction, from a social science perspective. Aleksandra's research explores issues related to pregnancy, early development and infancy.
