As a social anthropologist, Fabien is interested in the intersection of medicine and the law. His thesis, defended in 2019 at the University Paris Nanterre, was based on a 12-month ethnographic investigation conducted in three North-Indian hospitals. This work explores the pragmatics of medical language, the production of knowledge about the body, and the articulation of the biological and the social in the day-to-day practice of forensic medicine.
