Since my PhD research (2005), my research focuses on how religion is learnt, exploring, from an ethnographic perspective, the mutual influence between cognitive, sensory, emotional and social dimensions of religious learning. I am currently developing a new research in medical anthropology, working with patients suffering from a skin disease called psoriasis. I am interested in the first place in patient's experiential knowledge of illness. Through ethnographic methods, my aim is to show how psoriasis changes the way these persons relate to themselves (body, mind, emotions) and to others in their daily lives, as well as how, through their therapeutic journey, their learn to develop coping strategies despite chronic symptoms.
