Jacob Heath

MA, BSc (Hons)

NIHR Pre-Doctoral Fellow


I am currently an NIHR Pre-Doctoral Fellow within the Medical Sociology & Health Experiences Research Group (MS & HERG), prior to which I was a Research Assistant (Ann McPherson Fellow) within MS & HERG (2022-2023).

After completing my BSc in Anthropology (First Class Honours) from Oxford Brookes University, I worked as an Honorary Research Assistant for Oxford University Hospitals supporting research into the symptoms and course of illness caused by Covid-19 in healthcare workers. I then went on to complete an MA in Social/Medical Anthropology (Distinction) at SOAS, University of London where I researched 'What is it like to live with Long Covid?' for my thesis.

In my current role, I am exploring the ways in which ethnographic research methods can be used in health research, as well as user-generated content about ADHD on TikTok and diagnoses of ADHD in adulthood. I am also contributing to the joint Oxford-Warwick study 'Access to General Practice: innovation, impact and sustainable change (GP-SUS)'.
