Dr Alicia Renedo Udaondo
I am a social psychologist by background. My research focuses on community participation, health experiences and access to care using qualitative methods, and attending to socio-cultural and material contexts of heath. I am a member of the DEPTH group (Dialogue, Evidence, Participation and Translation for Health).
I have used ethnographic methods to research patient and public involvement in the NHS. I have conducted participatory qualitative research to understand transitions to adulthood among young people living with sickle cell ("This Sickle Cell Life" project).
My latest research project "Routes" involved participatory research with Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities, and with migrant workers in precarious jobs to co-produce insights into their experiences of COVID-19 and public health responses.
I supervise PhD and DrPH students (qualitative studies of community participation in health, health practices and access to care). I have experience teaching on the following modules: Principles of Social Research, Qualitative Methodologies, Health Services Research.
