Tell us a little about yourself:

I am a qualitative researcher with a background in applied health care research. I am particularly interested in how mixed qualitative methods can be used to develop, enhance and assess the design of health care interventions. I specialise in a method called applied conversation analysis, which involves examining how particular communication practices hinder or facilitate the achievement of institutional goals during interactions between professionals and service users.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself:

I love 80’s movies!

Why did you choose to work in dementia?

Dementia has such a substantial impact on people. I wanted to be involved in proactive research that sought to help people experiencing dementia to have more control and enjoyment in their lives.
