Aleksandr Shirokov is interested in the study of social interaction based on the analysis of video and audio data. Particularly, he uses Conversation Analysis to examine doctor–patient communication and works with a large database of Russian-language video-recordings of medical consultations. Currently, he explores the topic of epistemics or knowledge-in-interaction, specifically, how patients produce medical claims in communication with doctors.
