Research interests

Max is studying for a PhD in Sociology at the University of Bristol where his thesis (funded by the Economic And Social Research Council [ESRC]) is titled ‘A Sociology of the Medical Record’.

Max’s sociological interests focus on knowledge production and technology. His PhD thesis examines how Medical Records participate in knowledge production. Max asks why it is that 20 years of digitisation have not created fully digitised, secure and sharable medical records. The thesis will describe the complex politics of digitisation, and expose a struggle at the heart of medical knowledge production: A struggle about where knowledge is constructed, how it is coordinated, and over who gets to speak intelligibly about patient bodies.
