Research Overview

I am a health psychologist, academic researcher, and qualitative methods specialist. My main research interests are identity, stigma, sexuality, and embodiment in relation to living with a chronic physical health condition, physical disability or visible difference. In particular, I research issues surrounding amputation and artificial limb use.

I also have an interest in mental health issues, particularly as they relate to spiritual or religious themes. Key areas include anomalous experiences, such as sense-of-presence bereavement experiences, out-of-body and near-death experiences, and psychological difficulties experienced by psychic practitioners (e.g., mediums) and their clients.
