Charlotte Albury


DPhil Student

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.
