My research interests are centred around my PhD, which is entitled "Homeopathy: players, process and outcome". This is a qualitative exploration of what I term the "popularity paradox" - the fact that homeopathy is increasingly popular despite inconclusive clinical evidence in support of it. Pursing this I have sought to understand the narratives of doctor practitioners of homeopathy, the process of homeopathic care and the ways in which homeopathy has traditionally been researched.
Aside from homeopathic medicine I am interested in therapeutic consultation, unpacking the placebo effect and CAM in general. I am interested particularly in the models we create of health and healing and how these determine and constrain our therapeutic approaches.
