Dr Alicia Renedo BSc MSc PhD

Assistant Professor



I studied a BSc in Psychology (Deusto University, Spain), before joining the Social Psychology Institute at the London School of Economics (UK), where I completed my PhD.




I co-organise Qualitative Methodologies module and lead seminars on the Principles of Social Research compulsory module.

I supervise PhDs and I am a tutor in the MSc Public Health.


I am a social psychologist with expertise in qualitative health research.

I have a research interest in experiences of health and illness and the social context of health, with a particular emphasis on both theoretical and empirical aspects of patient involvement, participation and citizenship.

My current work is focused on transitions to adulthood among young people living with chronic conditions. More information about this project; "This Sickle Cell Life: voices and experiences of young people with sickle cell" here.

Many of my papers are openly available via LSHTM research online, here and here.
