I am a lecturer in Psychology in the Faculty of Science & Technology. Prior to joining Bournemouth University, I completed a PhD at the University of Southampton exploring the placebo effect in general practice medicine.


My research is interdisciplinary, focussed on the psychology and philosophy of medical practice. In particular, I explore how clinicians and patients make sense of and enact the clinical encounter.

I specialise in qualitative methodologies, notably ethnography, grounded theory, and critical discourse analysis.
