Daniel is a social anthropologist and as a research assistant in the project "Seafarers during the pandemic" at the Norwegian Maritime Museum, he is responsible for conducting qualitative interviews. "As a social anthropologist, all forms and expressions of sociality are interesting - therefore it is exciting to be able to work with research that includes an underexposed profession in interaction with the pandemic," says Daniel, who is looking forward to taking on the task.
