Research project: My thesis looks at gesture and silence in social interaction from a conversation analytic perspective.
Supervisors: Dr John Rae; Dr Lyndsey Moon
My main research is in healthcare communication, and I am a conversation analyst. My thesis focuses on methodological issues in conversation analysis (with relevance to other interactional research methods) related to the analysis of silence and non-vocal practices such as gesture.
My research areas are multifaceted and fall generally in at least one, but often more, of the following categories: conversation analysis, health and wellbeing practice, public health interventions, cross-cultural/cross-linguistic applications, and programme evaluation.
