Ms Jenny Lynden

Research Interests

I am undertaking research for my PhD which explores professional-client interactions in the care of horses diagnosed with laminitis.   The study adopts an ethnographic approach using mixed methods for collecting and analysing data, including thematic and discourse analyses.  I am particularly interested in how professional conversations, in the care of horses, are similar and different to conversations in other professional healthcare contexts, and what this might reveal about the social practices which are involved.  My PhD is being supervised by Professor Jane Ogden (School of Psychology) and Dr Teresa Hollands (School of Veterinary Medicine) in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
