Personal statement

My research interests lie broadly within the field of health, care and well being. As such, I have specific interest in holistic care, family carers, terminal illness, palliative care and bereavement. My PhD research synthesised these interests through investigating the use of digital legacies (video recordings) with people affected by motor neurone disease.

As a qualitative researcher, I have worked on a variety of projects such as developing tools for patients and carers living with motor neurone disease, exploring primary school teachers experiences of food poverty, medical education, and also undertaking service evaluations.

Being a Fellow of the HEA, I have lectured on a variety of health and social care modules, and also led modules focussed upon qualitative research methods.

I am now working as a post-doctoral research assistant on 'The HOW (Healthier Outcomes at Work) Social Work project' with Dr Jermaine Ravalier (PI), Dr Elaine Wainwright, Dr Mark Loon, and Dr Nina Smyth (University of Westminster).
