Research interests

I am interested in the life and transition experiences of children and young people with chronic conditions, specifically sickle cell disease, encompassing health, educational and social transitions. My main research interest relates to the experiences, self-management and support needs of children and young people with congenital/lond-standing medical conditions. issues examined include life experiences of children and young epople with chronic conditions; self-management and self-care; and transition experiences. in addition to work focused on experiences of children and young people with chronic illnesses, my research interests extends into examining sociological concepts such as belongong, 'normality', identity, body, gender and culture in the context of childhood chronic conditions.
