My research project
I have undertaken a scoping review to highlight the main research activities around older people living with HIV (OPLWHIV) and healthy, active and successful ageing to highlight the main studies around the topic. At the moment, I am conducting a qualitative study on health and ageing in OPLWHIV in rural and urban areas in England. With this study I hope to highlight how OPLWHIV make sense of their health in their local area.
My PhD research is about older people living with HIV (OPLWHIV) and their health and wellbeing. I am interested in understanding and exploring how OPLWHIV perceive their health. I am also interested in analysing the effects of stigma and intersectional stigma on the wellbeing of this population. At the moment, I am conducting a qualitative study on health and ageing in OPLWHIV in rural and urban areas in England. I am also undertaking the Stage 2 training in Health Psychology.
I am an Academic Tutor for undergraduate students in Psychology, supporting them during their transition from school-level to academic-level study. During the tutorial I focus on developing and improving Academic Skills (e.g. essay writing, poster and oral presentations), how to make good use of feedback and to develop critical thinking.
