Based in Anthropology at Durham University, Tehseen Noorani has an interdisciplinary background spanning also Sociology and Science and Technology Studies. He is interested in the phenomenological and epistemic character of extreme, fringe, weird and distressing experiences, and how these experiences are taken up in science and politics. He is completing a monograph tracing the renewed scientific and therapeutic interest in psychedelic experiences in the global North, exploring implications for theorizing pathology and mental healthcare. Tehseen conducted qualitative research with the Johns Hopkins psychedelic research team in Baltimore from 2013-2015, and was a member of the Wellcome Trust-funded project, Hearing the Voice, from 2018-2019.
