BA, MSc, AMRSPH, AFHEA
Researcher, Health Behaviours
- 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 to start 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 focussed on doctor-patient communication in primary care. I 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 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.
