I am a medical sociologist interested in applying qualitative research methods to applied health research. I am currently undertaking a DPhil study to explore how clubfoot services in Malawi are organised and delivered and achieve an understanding of the impact of accessing these services on children and their families. This is an ethnographic study using a range of methodologies including formal and informal interviews and participant observation.
Prior to this, I worked as a Qualitative Research Associate at NDORMS on a mixed-methods study exploring models of care for the delivery of secondary fracture prevention after hip fracture. The qualitative component of this mixed-methods study involved using semi-structured interviews to examine healthcare professionals’ experiences of delivering care and accessing barriers to change. I have also worked as a mixed-methods researcher within the voluntary sector.
