Biography

My PhD entitled 'Living With a New Normal; Women's Experiences Following Treatment for Early-Stage Breast Cancer or DCIS' was gained from The University of Nottingham in 2013. I subsequently carried out further research focussing on the experiences of women who have been treated for non-invasive breast cancer, ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). This was supported by a Mildred Blaxter Research Fellowship from the Foundation for the Sociology of Health and Illness http://www.shifoundation.org.uk/?page_id=295
