Anthropologist Lisanne (26) is an anthropologist within the Chemical Youth research group at the University of Amsterdam. Her research focuses on young people in Amsterdam, where she follows their trajectory towards ‘super health’. Through participant observation, she explores how youths experiment with vitamins and supplements, monitor and measure their bodies, and experience the evasive boundaries of the body’s inside, surface and surroundings. Her research interests span healthy lifestyles in urban settings, notions of drug efficacy, mixing and blending of foods, supplements and vitamins, experience-based evidence, natural/synthetic dichotomies, and marketing health. Lisanne lives and works in Amsterdam.
