Research interests for potential research students
I am primarily interested in health and wellbeing.
My PhD was concerned with how, and why, gastrointestinal conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease impact psychosocial factors such as subjective wellbeing and social relationships/support. The experiences of individuals with these conditions were explored using a mixed methods approach.
