About Me

I am a conversation analyst and psychologist with a focus on health. I believe in engaging with multiple, overlapping subject areas and reject the idea that researchers should hyperspecialize, neglecting the many factors that go into an individual or community's experience of health or even a single condition. As a result, my work integrates many aspects of health, incorporating communication and social determinants of health as well as ethical and methodological issues. I am committed to the idea that one should use methods appropriate to the research question rather than attempt to mould research questions to preferred methods. I am thus experienced in a range of research methods, including conversation analysis, experiments, survey research, systematic reviews, grounded theory, program evaluation, and other qualitative and quantitative methods.
