DPhil Supervision

My research interests are around disability (particularly learning disability  and autism), qualitative research and health experiences. I'm also interested in exploring ways of including people who are 'seldom heard' in research.

My connections

Sara Ryan


Senior Research Lead

My background is in Sociology and my research interests are disability, difference, autism, disorder and qualitative methods. I completed my PhD at the University of Warwick in 2006 and began working in HERG as a Qualitative Researcher. My current work is focusing on the birth experiences of learning disabled mothers and exploring ways of including more 'seldom heard' people in research. I contribute to the MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care, HERG qualitative methods courses and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
