Maryam Ahmadyar

BDS (Hons), MSc (Dist)

DPhil Candidate

  • I am a DPhil candidate under the supervision of Dr. Geoff Wong and Professor Blanaid Daly, funded by the University of Oxford Clarendon Scholarship.
  • The focus of my project is understanding interventions to improve access of homeless adolescents and young adults to primary care dental services. I will be exploring this topic using a critical realist approach, whereby I will be employing a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, in order to investigate contextual factors and causal mechanisms in understanding of complex health interventions.
  • My wider interests include interdisciplinary and participatory approaches to research, social & health inequalities and empowerment of marginalised groups. I am also interested in further exploring the applications of critical realism in health research.
  • My background is in dentistry, whereby I have extensive experience of clinical practice across various settings, in addition to research and teaching. I have also completed an MSc in Dental Public Health at UCL. My clinical work is currently based in London.
