About Isabella Pistone

Isabella Pistone is a doctoral student in theory of science at the University of Gothenburg. Her research interests include evidence-basing, quality improvement and care practices in welfare. She is currently working on a thesis where she explores applied forms of STS in relation to issues concerning evidence-basing in welfare practices. Together with a group of several doctoral students and senior researchers, she combines the production of evidence in the form of systematic reviews with epistemological analyses of evidence-based practices in health care, social work, and education. Currently, she is involved in a research project that explores the potential shapes of evidence-basing combined with improvement work within a disability care practice at a social care provider in Sweden. Drawing on a large body of sociological research on evidence-basing and care practices she is experimenting with different forms of evidence-basing and building knowledge infrastructures at the social care provider.
