Melissa Ceuterick is a postdoctoral researcher at Hedera UGent. In her PhD she focused on the impact of migration on traditional medicine use among people of Andean descent in the UK (Bradford University, 2009). Her research is situated at the intersections between 1) medication use and identity and 2) migration and health. She coordinates and supervises qualitative research in these areas, i.e. Belspo BENZONET, BENZOCARE, REMEDI; IBOF Opioid-related Stigma and FWO Red Noses Culture-Sensitive Stigma Survey, STAMINA. Since 2017 she is a lecturer-in-charge of the Health Sociology and Social Demography Seminar (UGent), where students develop a Community Service Learning project on health or migration, and of various health sociology courses (UGent-VUB). As of 2023 she is a member of the Advisory Board of the European Society for Health and Medical Sociology.
