I am a social psychologist with expertise in qualitative health research. I am interested in using and contributing to social theory as a way of developing critical insights on different aspects of health.
My research focuses on community participation and patient involvement in the planning and governance of health services, research, and quality improvement, with a particular emphasis on both theoretical and empirical aspects of empowerment, citizenship in health and knowledge co-production.
I also have a general interest in the social aspects of young people's health. I have conducted participatory research to understand transitions to adulthood among young people living with long-term conditions. More information about this project; "This Sickle Cell Life" here.
