Research interests

I have used and developed qualitative methods, contributing to applied and interdisciplinary and interprofessional health research that is directly relevant to a range of practitioners, managers and policy makers in health care. My research comes together around four distinct themes:

  • Combining insights from sociology and ethnography to study the implementation and use of technologies to support healthcare work and their effects on patient safety and quality of care
  • Developing novel ways of understanding and responding to the complex dynamics of ‘super-diversity’ which have emerged as a result of increasing social, ethnic, religious etc diversification through changing patterns of immigration in contemporary Europe
  • Developing participatory community based approaches to studying the experiences of health and illness in minority ethnic and migrant communities in order to shape interventions to reduce inequalities in health
  • Innovation in more collaborative forms of patient and public involvement in which people are seen as partners in research and service development, not just as people who are consulted or from whom data are sourced, to facilitate engagement in high quality, relevant research and development activities.
