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 also blog for Mental Elf, an interdisciplinary Charity which reviews research articles on Mental Health with the aim to make this research more accessible.
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 alongside my DPhil. I contributed to the ESRC diverse experiences of COVID HealthTalk project. I now work on the SLIM-WELL trial with Dr Maddie Tremblett.
I run the Oxford Qualitative Courses Twitter account alongside Dr. Charlotte Albury and the Ann McPherson Fellows. 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.
