After completing my PhD in Sociology and Social Policy (Newcastle University, 2005) on childcare in Chinese and Bangladeshi communities, I worked on a Big Lottery funded project on older people as volunteers. Moving to Health Services Research, my research has covered the experiences of abortion in a clinical trial, decision-making about the hyper-acute treatment of stroke (both funded by NIHR) and gestational diabetes with a view to developing a diabetes prevention intervention (funded by Diabetes UK). In 2011 I completed work on a project about an ambient home monitoring system for older people (funded by TSB) and work with an NIHR research fellow in a project on 'Designing a Decision Aid for Choice of Urinary Diversion with Cystectomy'. In the same year I started work as a research associate on a multi-centre cohort study (MERIDIAN, NIHR-HTA funded)) assessing the role of MRI scanning in the diagnosis of fetal brain abnormalities in utero. The sociological study component involves working across faculties at the Institute of Cellular Medicine and the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, as well as with colleagues at Sheffield University's Clinical Trials Research Unit. In 2015, Ruth Graham and I were awarded an ESRC Impact Acceleration Grant administered by HASS to run a series of practitioner workshops across the UK to increase the potential impact of the findings of the sociological sub-study. Presently, I am involved in a range of qualitative studies evaluating or assessing the impact or experience of clinical interventions from the patient or clinician perspective.

My general area of expertise is in qualitative research in social policy and healthcare contexts, having interviewed black and minority ethnic participants, children, older people, young women, patients and health care professionals. I also have some experience in quantitative methods using SPSS. I am interested in comparative case study research, household research and social networks. I have particular expertise in a range of QSR software for qualitative analysis (most recently NVIVO7 and Atlas.ti), and in working with interpreters in research among speakers of other languages. In the past few years, I have developed particular skills in narrative interviewing on sensitive topics.
