Jeffrey Christensen is a PhD student at Linköping University at TEMA T - Technology and Social Change. His dissertation project is situated at the intersection of STS, algorithm studies, and medical anthropology where he investigates the multiplicity of algorithms that are mobilised in the governance of HIV. Working through ethnographic and digital methods allows him to approach diagnostic, laboratory, and epidemiological algorithms in order the better to understand their entanglements and performativity in practice. His interests are related to the ontological politics of digital devices and how these technologies necessitate a reconsideration of materiality, subjectivity, and corporeality. Additional concerns are the myriad of ways in which reflexivity, valuation, and accountability are done through research practices.
