BA, MSc, AFHEA, D.Phil
- Teaching Lead, Qualitative Research Methods, HERG
I have a background in medical anthropology, and my experience has focused on use of ethnographic and socio-linguistic methodologies to explore patient experiences of health and illness, including Spirit healing and body modification. I am trained in applied conversation analysis and in the Conversation Analytic Role Play Method.
I joined the dept in 2015 and used conversation analysis to explore audio recorded interactions between patients and GPs during the BWeL trial, and link these to patient weight loss outcomes. I currently work across a series of projects using conversation analysis to identify ways to improve communication in clinical settings, including smoking cessation, diabetes self-management, and clinical risk communication.I also lead and co-ordinate short courses in qualitative research methods.
I regularly collaborate with colleagues at Memorial University, Canada, on a suite of work focussing on treatment of lower-back pain in primary care.
Communication in clinical settings
Prior to joining the department I worked in teaching, and I am an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I lead the department's short courses in qualitative research methods. I also co-lead the University's courses on data management with NVivo.
