I teach on the MSc Evidence Based Health Care (EBHC) module Qualitative Research Methods, and on the Advanced Qualitative Research Methods course. 

Catherine Montgomery

BA, MSc, PhD

Senior Researcher

I am a medical sociologist, specialising in the sociology of science and technology in health intervention research.  My interests lie at the intersection of the social and biomedical sciences, and have focused to date on the ways in which the design of clinical research produces particular configurations of knowledge, sociality and change. 

I joined the Health Experiences Research Group (HERG) in 2016 to conduct ethnographic research on the ways in which frontline NHS staff use patient experience data to improve care. Prior to this, I held fellowships at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research, the Department of Sociology at the University of York and the Institute for Science, Innovation & Society at the University of Oxford.

I have written extensively at the intersections of Global Health research and Science & Technology Studies (STS), with a particular focus on the active work of methods in shaping the social world. I am a member of the editorial board of Critical Public Health.
