Amelia Talbot

MA, BA (Hons)

Rosamund Snow Fellow (DPhil)

I 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 run the Oxford Qualitative Courses Twitter account alongside Dr Charlotte Albury. Together we have seen a steady growth in our followers. Please follow us: I am also a DPhil representative for the Athena Swan Self-Assessment team.

Outside of my DPhil, I am working on publishing my master's thesis titled 'The 'Snowflakes' of Modernity: A Qualitative Investigation of Millennial Women, Anxiety, and the Challenges of Adulting in a Neoliberal Society'. I am also in the process of publishing three other projects. One is a collaboration with colleagues in Leicester regarding a physical intervention for adolescent girls and another with colleagues MS&HERG about endometriosis. The final is a weight-management project where I am lead author.
