Caitlin Pilbeam


DPhil Student

I am the recipient of a Wellcome-funded studentship affiliated with the Studies in Co-Creating Assisted Living Solutions (SCALS) project, under the supervision of Professor Trish Greenhalgh and Dr Caroline Potter.

With a background in medical anthropology, my previous experience particularly focuses on ethnographic methods and phenomenology. Passionate about holistic wellbeing, my research interests centre around living well towards the end of life. I am currently writing up my DPhil project. The project explores how individuals with heart failure negotiate end of life, which may be an unpredictable trajectory potentially over years. I focus on what patients want out of their care and their lives, how this can be supported (or not) by technology, and finally how this might affect the way we understand quality of life towards the end of life.
