Heather is the Qualitative Research Fellow on the GCRF funded study Co-designing culturally engaging alcohol intervention to reduce harm in Nepal, working with Professor Jacqueline Sin in collaboration with Dr Ranjita Dhital (Reading University), Nagendra Luitel (TPO Nepal) and Anup Adhikari (PRIME Nepal).
Heather’s research focuses upon developing ethnographic, creative, and participatory epistemologies and methods for qualitative research in mental health. In so doing, she seeks to understand the many forms of lay health knowledge and lay health experience, and especially that which comes from women. In particular, Heather seeks to challenge health inequalities, and to ensure that the knowledge and experience of those most marginalised by mental ill-health and social exclusion is used effectively and ethically. In addition, she is thinking a lot about how Covid-19 might be transforming how health and mental health are experienced and embodied by us all.
