Dara Ivanova is doing a PhD project on the significance of place for the governance of healthcare. The aim is to understand and mobilize place as a focal point in healthcare research by examining the relation between place and governance. The focus is on somewhat odd and unconventional empirical cases, where the importance of place as an analytical concept can be observed clearly. Dara has an educational background in cultural anthropology (Utrecht University) and is currently a member of the Netherlands Graduate Research School of Science, Technology and Modern Culture.
