Anthony (Tony) Bell
Probationary Research Student
Tony Bell is a probationary DPhil student with a broad interest in matters of medical anthropology and global health. More specifically, his interests include: the overuse of antibiotics in primary care; bio-social understandings and the control of infectious disease; palliative and end of life care and health promotion within marginalised and disadvantaged groups.
His DPhil is centred on exploring the wider socio-cultural determinants (like socio-economic deprivation and ethnicity) behind antibiotic use within the Scottish context.
Tony also has a specific methodological interest in applied qualitative research, especially in synthesising more abstract theoretical work with grounded recommendations for policy and practice.
