BSc (Hons) MSc
Research Assistant (Ann McPherson Fellow)
I am interdisciplinary health social social scientist with a background in Medical Anthropology and Applied Health research. My research focuses on the use of qualitative methodologies to capture patient narratives to improve patient experiences and address health inequalities. I currently hold the Ann McPherson predoctoral fellowship in the Medical Sociology & Health Experiences Group (MS& HERG).
I joined the department in 2021, and currently work on two qualitative COVID-19 studies being conducted within MS&HERG.
- Learning from diverse experiences of COVID-19
- Understanding experiences of Long COVID in families studies
I have a BSC in Anthropology from Bournemouth University and an MSc in Medical Anthropology from University College London (UCL). My masters research used qualitative interviews and a policy review to explore the delivery of rehabilitation care to COVID-19 patients through the theoretical lens of clinical decision-making. I have also previously conducted COVID-19 research on healthcare workers experiences and perspectives of the pandemic with the Rapid Research Appraisal and Evaluation Lab (RREAL) at UCL.
My PhD at the University of Edinburgh will commence in September 2022 and will focus on “The use of restrictive practices with people with diminished capacity in care settings”.
