Abigail McNiven

Qualitative Researcher

I am currently working on a project about experiences of participating in cohort studies. 

I joined the Health Experiences Research Group in 2014 to work on a study about young people and skin conditions (acne, eczema, psoriasis and alopecia). Since then, I have also worked on studies about: pre-eclampsia and high blood pressure in pregnancy; the experiences of research nurses, midwives and allied health professionals; and supporting patients with suspected endometriosis in primary care.

I am a social geographer by background and completed my PhD in the Department of Geography at Durham University on the topic of pregnancy loss experiences.

My research interests include reproductive health, geographies of the body, emotional geographies, feminist scholarship, death and bereavement studies, and qualitative research methodologies.
