MA, BA (Hons)
Rosamund Snow Research Fellow (DPhil), Research Assistant
I am one of two Rosamund Snow Fellows (DPhil). My thesis investigates experiences of treatment-resistant depression to improve care pathways. My supervisors are Professor Sara Ryan, Dr Kamal Mahtani, and Dr Charlotte Albury and I am based in the Medical Sociology and Health Experiences Research Group (MS&HERG). My background is medical sociology with a focus on mental health and qualitative methods, although I have worked on a variety of health-related projects.
I was the 2019 Ann McPherson Research Fellow (RA) with responsibilities related to admin, data analysis, paper writing, and transcribing. During my Fellowship, I worked and published projects on endometriosis, cohort studies, LGBTQ+ identities, and weight management. I also taught on the Oxford Qualitative Courses. I continue to support these sessions during my DPhil.
I still work as an RA within MS&HERG. I am currently working with Dr Anna Dowrick and Dr Tanvi Rai on the non-ICU covid project. Seldom-heard voices, like the ones we have included in this project, are at the centre of all my research.
I run the Oxford Qualitative Courses Twitter account alongside Dr Charlotte Albury. Together we have seen a steady growth in our followers. Please follow us: https://twitter.com/OxQualiCourses.
I am a DPhil representative for the Athena Swan Self-Assessment team alongside Lucy Goddard. We bring forward issues that matter to DPhils in relation to equality, wellbeing, and career progression.
I am a mental health advocate. I live with bipolar disorder and am passionate about how we can make these conditions more visible and less stigmatised I often use my Twitter account to talk about my experiences and engage with others with mental health conditions.
Outside of my DPhil, I enjoy baking, gaming, walking, and spending time with my friends.
