Biography

Ingrid joined CESAGen Cardiff in 2006 as an ESRC/MRC Postdoctoral Fellow where she is working on publications and dissemination of her PhD research. Ingrid is a sociologist of science interested in innovative medical technologies. After her degrees at the University of Amsterdam (MSc Science Studies 1998, MA Sociology 2000) she worked in research and journalism. Her last position before moving to Cardiff was at RAND Europe, an independent think tank for policy analysis. Ingrid's PhD research at Cardiff University focused on socio-political, ethical and economic aspects of tissue engineering regulation in Europe. Alongside, Ingrid worked on an ESRC/MRC grant under the Innovative Health Technologies programme, entitled 'Medical Device Governance: Regulation of Tissue Engineering in the United Kingdom and European Union'. This project studied discourses of risk and regulation, and of clinical evidence in the experimental development of different tissue technologies.
