I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Clinical Conversation Analysis at the University of Exeter. My current research is on Risk Communication in Clinical Encounters as part of a wide project, funded by the NIHR entitled 'Person Centred Risk Communication: What works best for People with Epilepsy and their Clinicians'.
I am interested in the structural organisation of naturally occurring talk across a variety of settings, namely, clinical encounters, everyday family interactions, initial interactions, and public encounters.
My PhD research was on resistance in family interactions, with a focus on the sequential organisation of resistance, and how members orient to authority and categories in 'resistance sequences' in these family interactions. Ultimately, this research addressed issues of action and interaction, considering how actions are achieved and orientations to the social order in everyday interaction.
