BA, MSc, AMRSPH, AFHEA
I’m an SPCR funded D.Phil student supervised by Professor Paul Aveyard, Professor Sue Ziebland, Dr Helena Webb and Professor Liz Stokoe.
My D.Phil research focusses on doctor-patient communication in primary care. I am using conversation analysis to explore audio recorded interactions between patients and GPs during the BWeL trial, and link these to patient weight loss outcomes. I also collaborate with colleagues at Memorial University, Canada, on a suite of work focussing on treatment of lower-back pain in primary care.
I am trained in applied conversation analysis and in the Conversation Analytic Role Play Method. 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.
Prior to joining the department I worked in teaching, and I am an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I currently teach on qualitative research methods courses, and data management with NVivo.
