Personal profile

My research interests relate to health psychology, particularly critical qualitative health psychology, and studies that explore health inequalities and the health and wellbeing of members of marginalised and/or minority populations. I have a particular interest in lived experiences of chronic illness, and use of creative qualitative research methods. My Ph.D. research explores British men’s experiences of living with and beyond a breast cancer diagnosis, using a combination of verbal and visual research methods.
