I am a Research Fellow in the Centre for Primary Care. A social anthropologist by background, I undertake interdisciplinary projects in applied health research, adopting a wide range of participant-focused methods: ethnographic, narrative, surveys, visual approaches.

I joined QMUL in 2017 to take a lead role in collection, management, analysis and interpretation of data for the APOLLO-MM project - an in-depth ethnographic case study of patients’ and healthcare professionals’ experiences and practices of polypharmacy to inform a safe, effective and person-centred approach to medicines use in primary care.

My research explores interrelationships between knowledge, expertise, and practice in complex healthcare settings:

  • patients’ roles in health service design/research
  • implementation of research findings into professional practice/policy
  • identifying stroke survivors’ unmet care needs
  • patient and professional experiences and practices of polypharmacy
  • practicing ‘safety’ in community pharmacy
