I am a qualitative and mixed methods researcher with training in medical anthropology. I have a particular interest in action research that applies and integrates qualitative and quantitative methodologies to create health and social improvements. My research to date has explored how notions of race, ethnicity and self and community identity influence health behaviour and the experiences and outcomes of care. I am also particularly interested in how micro, meso and macro factors interact to shape and potentially change health inequalities. A central theme of my work with PenCLAHRC focuses on complex interventions and patient experience and I am currently leading a scoping exercise on Patient Centred Integrated Care (PCIC). The aim of this is to create a taxonomy of PCIC components and map the different ways in which this model of care is delivered. I am also supporting the activity of several projects across the CLAHRC. The Partners 2 study is a multi-site PGfAR funded study developing and piloting a system of primary care based collaborative care for people with severe mental illness. I am also supporting the NICE Implementation project.
