Kim Price has previously been a Wellcome Trust Research Fellow and winner of several research grants. He has held research posts in several UK universities, including Leicester, Northumbria, Oxford and Oxford Brookes. He has wide ranging research interests with a specialist focus in the complex relationships between law, poverty, health and welfare; particularly the ways that people are treated in institutions and the different ways that access to healthcare can affect quality of life and standards of care. Kim is always keen to forge collaborations and use his knowledge to foster fresh links and bridge academic divides. His publications include articles in the Lancet and the Social History of Medicine and a recent co-authored article in the Journal of Interprofessional Care. Kim has joined the University of Liverpool as a research associate with the Digital Panopticon project, using that project's Big Data in order to digitally analyse and visualise the interaction of convict health with the experiential history of prisons in the nineteenth century.
