Anne-Marie trained as a social anthropologist specialising in health at PhD level (University of Liverpool). Her doctoral research explored the relationship between acquired facial 'disfigurement' and identity shift; and socio-cultural meanings and roles associated with faces. She would like to use this as a foundation to explore the relationship between facial transplantation and identity shift.
Anne-Marie has extensive experience as a researcher, lecturer, policy analyst and evaluator. Prior to her role at the University of Manchester she worked at the University of Liverpool, researching and evaluating a variety of local, community based and national health initiatives, and acted as a sessional health sociology, and policy lecturer.
I aim to share the results of my research with varied stakeholder groups to make the research as useful as possible. These have included
- lay summaries
- public presentations, and
- being interviewed on two BBC Radio Merseyside show's on disability, and 'disfigurement'.
My PhD research shed light on a group who have been socially excluded and discriminated against, people with facial 'disfigurements'. The results were sent to facially related groups across England.
