Aimee is a Masters Candidate in the department of Sociology at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Her research interests involve the deconstruction of medicine as an institution of biopower, and problematizing medical interventions as mechanisms of social control. Her most recent research focusses on the life impacts of bariatric surgery, and utilises user narratives to examine the extent to which users subscribe to and perpetuate biomedical hegemony.
