Biography

Dr Sam Quinn joined the End-of-Life Studies group in July 2021. He works as Research Associate on the Dying in the Margins project. This participatory visual-methods project aims to investigate the experiences of people living with a life-limiting condition while experiencing financial hardship. There are two main phases to the study:

  • Photovoice with people with a life-limiting diagnosis who are experiencing financial hardship
  • Digital stories with bereaved carers and relatives of people who had a life-limiting diagnosis and were experiencing financial challenges.

Before joining the University of Glasgow, Sam completed his Doctoral research on the end-of-life experiences of people with Down syndrome and Dementia in December 2019. This ethnographic work explored the experiences of people living and working in a group home for people with learning disabilities and dementia. Sam has worked on a range of qualitative research projects encompassing quality improvement in the third sector, frontline health staff experiences of working during COVID-19, and a project to facilitate discussions about risk with forensic inpatients with a learning disability.
