Dr Ruth Lewis

  • Research Fellow (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)

Biography

  • I am a sociologist working to improve health and wellbeing among individuals and communities.
  • My research aims to explore how social relationships and identities shape health and wellbeing, and how to translate these understandings into interventions to improve population health. I am particularly interested in intersections between gender, sexuality and health.
  • Much of my work focuses on young people, and I tend to use qualitative methodologies.
  • Current projects include:
    • WAYS (Wellbeing Among Youth in Scotland), a qualitative project using interviews and photos to explore understandings and experiences of health and wellbeing among LGBTQ+ young people living in diverse locations and circumstances across Scotland;
    • TRIUMPH (Transdisciplinary Research for the Improvement of Youth Mental Public Health) - a UKRI-funded network, which brings together young people, academics, practitioners and policymakers to find new solutions to improve youth mental health. I am Co-Lead for the Key Groups theme, which focuses on groups of young people with poorer mental health outcomes, including LGBTQ+ and care-experienced young people; 
    • Natsal-4 (the fourth British National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles);
    • The JACK Trial, a UK-wide NIHR-funded RCT evaluating a school-based sexual health promotion programme.
  • I am an Associate Director for the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships, and a member of the Operations Committee for the Scottish Interdisciplinary Research in Sexual Health (IReSH) network. I am also a member of the British Sociological Association and the Scottish Parliament Cross Party Group on Sexual Health and Blood Borne Viruses.
  • Prior to joining SPHSU, I worked at the University of Edinburgh (2009), the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (2009-2014), and the University of the Pacific (2014-2017). I hold degrees from University of Leeds (BA Hons, Geography) and University of Edinburgh (MSc Social Research; PhD Sociology).
