My research examines the experiences of people living with chronic illness and their social support networks (both formal and informal), paying attention to how they negotiate the often-competing demands of everyday life, challenges of self-management, fluctuations in the condition, dealing with prognoses, and wellbeing. I am interested in how concepts of biosociality and quality of life impact upon such experiences. In particular, my research focuses on the following four conditions/contexts: stroke, Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes, and amputation/limb deficiency.
