Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in community based and participative approaches to health care research. I have a particular interest in rights based/critical research based in low and middle income environments/ contexts, or involving aspects of health care that are marginalised or stigmatised, such as women’s health. I also have an interest in educational research, particularly of a qualitative or social science design, notably; (auto)ethnography, appreciative inquiry and action research to address such professional issues as professional identification and the cultural and social aspects of physiotherapy practice. I have supported many MSc students to completion of their degree and have been part of PhD teams.
