Stephanie has a background in medical anthropology and gained her PhD from Durham University in 2017. She subsequently worked as the qualitative research assistant on a process evaluation of walking groups with Durham University before moving to the University of York in January 2018. Her interest in complex health interventions led Stephanie to join the Mental Health and Addiction Research Group (MHARG) where she now works as a Qualitative Research Fellow on the CHAMP-1 study.
Stephanie’s research interests surround complex health interventions and how health practices, including physical activity, fit into people’s everyday lives. She is interested in traditional and innovative ethnographic methods, including participant photography, mobile interviewing, and participant observation.
