My connections

Veronika Williams

Bsc (hons) PhD

Qualitative Researcher


My research focuses on the experiences of people living with a long-term condition (with a particular interest in chronic respiratory disease) and how we can support their self-management by further developing existing interventions.

I am also interested in how people aging with a chronic condition experience health and illness; health care services and care of older people. My research predominately involves qualitative research methods, but I also have expertise in working on qualitative studies embedded within clinical trials. 

I currently work with Professor Andrew Farmer on a COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and tele-health trial 'COPD EDGE: sElf- management anD support proGrammE for COPD', where I am exploring patients' views on self-management and their experience of using a mobile health application.

I teach on the HERG qualitative research methods courses and the Msc EBHC and have experience of supervising and examining research students at postgraduate level.

I am an executive member and past treasurer of the British Society of Gerontology and I am a member of the British Sociological Association 'Ageing, Body and Society' Study Group.
