Aleksandr Shirokov


Doctoral Student


Aleksandr Shirokov uses Conversation Analysis to examine doctor-patient communication and works with video recordings of medical consultations. He is interested in examining how doctors and patients manage asymmetry in interaction and how patients exercise agency in actions that step into the doctor’s territory of expertise, such as diagnostic assertions and treatment requests.
