Anthony (Tony) Bell

Probationary Research Student

Research Interests

Tony Bell is a probationary DPhil student with a broad interest in matters of medical anthropology and global health. More specifically, his main interests include: the use of antibiotics in deprived general practice settings; bio-social understandings and the control of neglected tropical disease; palliative and end of life care and health promotion within marginalised groups.

His DPhil project (ExpAnD) is centered on exploring the use of antibiotics for common respiratory infections in deprived Scottish communities, with a distinct focus on how health inequalities may shape infection management within this context.

Alongside his primary work on antibiotics, Tony has a specific interest in neglected tropical disease, specifically relating to serious infections such as viral haemorrhagic fevers. Within this area of study, his primary interest lies in understanding the social dimensions of these infections (such as stigma), and how social scientists can collaborate with clinicians and other healthcare professionals in preventing and managing the spread of such infections.           

He also has a specific methodological interest in applied qualitative health research, especially in synthesising more abstract theoretical work with grounded recommendations for policy and practice.
