Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I am a doctorate student at the University of Western Sydney with a keen interest in men's health. Other current research includes inequalities in health (by social class and ethnicity as well as gender), and lay perceptions of social inclusion and their influence on health related behaviours. My conference track record demonstrates a strong theoretical understanding and appreciation of quantitative and qualitative research.
