Biography

I obtained my PhD in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Simon Fraser University (Canada, 2015). My research was an ethnographic study of hospital palliative care specialists and patients, and how they collectively negotiated the dying process within increasingly complex health systems.

Before joining the University of Glasgow I held several post-doctoral positions in partnership with Trinity Western University (Langley, B.C.), The Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences (Providence Health, Vancouver, B.C.), and The Canadian Frailty Network.

My previous degrees are in Communication (Masters, Simon Fraser University) and Anthropology (Bachelor, University of British Columbia).

In conjunction with my academic career, I have also worked as an independent research consultant, holding a number of coordinator positions on large multi-year health research initiatives. 

Research interests

I am interested in the following topics, particularly in relation to palliative and end of life hospital care:

  • Prognostic uncertainty
  • Clinical practice change, innovation, and person-centered care
  • Organizational culture and systems modeling
  • Patient-reported outcome and experience measures
  • Emotional labour
  • Quality of life and suffering
  • Family caregivers
  • Affect theory
  • The history of medicine
  • Reserach ethics
  • Ethnogrpahic, qualitative and non-traditional methods
