Bio

Nina is a Research Associate in Social Science in the Complex Intervention and Social Practice in Health Care unit within the Centre for Primary Care and Public Health.

Nina joined QMUL in 2017 to take a lead role in collection, management, analysis and interpretation of data for the APOLLO-MM project - an in-depth ethnographic case study of patients’ and healthcare professionals’ experiences and practices of polypharmacy to inform a safe, effective and person-centred approach to medicines use in primary care (www.polypharmacy.org.uk).

Nina is an experienced social scientist with an interest in the use of ethnographic methods for understanding health, and the systems and practices of health care and research. She gained her first degree in Anthropology from Cambridge University in 1997. She completed an MSc in Environmental Epidemiology and Policy in 2000 from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and a PhD from King’s College London in June 2013.

Her research interests include long-term conditions, in particular stroke, polypharmacy, concepts and practices of citizen and patient participation in health systems, the role of patients in research implementation and concepts and practices of knowledge production in biomedical research.
