Program Type



My current research using phenomenology and IPA is focussed on the lived experiences of patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), developing knowledge and theory to optimise patient experience and management, whilst they are in the ICU and beyond.
Within the Sydney Medical Program and Nepean Clinical School, I use phenomenology and qualitative analysis to analyse the educational experiences of healthcare students and staff, leading to innovation and implementation of new educational paradigms and curricula.
