I joined NDOG as research nurse/midwife in 2007. Since 2009 I have been working for Tim Child and the other NDOG groups based in the IRS building. The research studies I am involved in mainly focus on causes of infertility, reproductive failure and fertility treatments themselves.
My PhD was an ethnographic study of infertile couples as they started medical treatments, including IVF, to help their situation. I am particularly interested in using qualitative methodologies as an alternative research paradigm, for example in investigating patient experiences.
