Research Overview

My current research projects are largely linked to work with Liverpool Head and Neck Centre. I am involved in a number of evaluations which have the aim of improving services for patients with diseases of the Head and Neck.

I have a personal interest in the anthropological concept of liminality, I have published on how this concept can be used to understand (and try to prevent) unneccessary attrition from nursing programmes. I am currently exploring liminality from the perspective of how it can be used to explain elements of the grieving process.
