Leader of the research group “Global health: ethics, economics and culture” based at the Faculty of Medicine, UoB.

Blystad is professor in medical anthropology at the University of Bergen (UoB), Norway, with particular research interest in maternal health with an empirical focus on fertility, infertility, mother to child transmission of HIV, obstetric fistula, female genital cutting, incontinence and prolapse.

Her work springs out of more than 20 years of research in East Africa. Methodologically the research is based in the ethnographic tradition, more recently in combination with other qualitative methods as well as in combination with quantitative methods in mixed methods designs.

Theoretical interests are located within socio-cultural theory, critical theory, gender theory, phenomenology and institutional ethnography. She is principle investigator of several externally funded multidisciplinary research projects.
