- Associate (Institute of Health & Wellbeing)
I am a Lecturer and Health Psychologist appointed in both the School of Education (People, Place and Social Change Research Group) and School of Psychology. My teaching and research takes place at the intersections between education, medicine and psychology. I am a pluralist researcher but my starting point involves using a variety of qualitative techniques and recent innovations in the field such as photo-elicitation, to uncover and document the complex narratives associated with lived experiences. These lived experiences range from adjusting to chronic illness, resilience in later life, lifelong learning and wellbeing, and post-graduate adjustment to studying abroad.
I have a broad and ecletic mix of research interests
Health Psychology, narrative Medicine, learning and health, counselling skills, doctor-patient relationships, chronic pain, orofacial pain, documenting illness, qualitative methodology, Intepretative Phenomonological Analysis (IPA), the psychology of ageing, promoting wellbeing in later life, public engagement, visual arts and design, photo-elicitation.
Kate welcomes enquiries from prospective PhD students, researchers and potential academic collaborators.
