Research

My research focuses on different aspects of participatory approaches to improving health and equity, with a particular emphasis on knowledge co-production, citizenship and patient activism. I have used ethnographic methods to research patient and public involvement in healthcare quality improvement in the NHS.

My research also focuses on health and healthcare experiences, with particular attention to how these interact with people's socio-cultural and material contexts. I have conducted participatory qualitative research to understand transitions to adulthood among young people living with sickle cell. "This Sickle Cell Life" project was co-produced with young people, carers and clinicians. More information about this project: here.

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