BA (Hons) DPhil
Deputy Director of Applied Research
- Senior Qualitative Researcher
- University Research Lecturer
I am a medical sociologist working with the Health Experiences Research Group (HERG). My research focuses on women's health, in particular experiences of infertility, pregnancy, childbirth and experiences of neonatal care, and the role of the Internet in mediating health experiences. How our research on patient experiences can make a difference to patients and health professionals is crucial and I am interested in how we can apply our research to improve the commissioning and delivery of health care services.
Before joining HERG in 2007 to start my doctoral studies, I was a TV and web producer, working for the BBC and Channel 4. My DPhil explored the information and support needs of women and men going through infertility. I have completed three modules for the award-winning Healthtalk website - Infertility (published in 2012) and Experiences of life-threatening illnesses in pregnancy and childbirth (published in April 2013) and Parent's experiences of neonatal surgery (published February 2017).
I am involved with a programme of work studying self-monitoring of blood pressure during pregnancy (See Hypertension) and have two ongoing collaborations with the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit (NPEU). A qualitative interview study of parent experiences of neonatal surgery in collaboration with Professor Marian Knight and BAPS-CASS (https://www.npeu.ox.ac.uk/baps-cass) and an online focus group and discrete choice study on women's choice of birthplace, Birthplace Choices, with Jennifer Hollowell (https://www.npeu.ox.ac.uk/birthplace/birthplace-choices-project).
I am involved in teaching on the HERG Qualitative Research Methods courses and the MSc in Evidence-based Healthcare, doctoral supervision and reviewing for peer-review journals.
