Her research has ranged from exploring, patients experience of psychiatric services, the social patterning of mental health problems, lay epidemiology, professional knowledge and sociological analysis of old and new forms of treatment. Her recent research interests include a focus on the 'work' that patients undertake in the area of long term condition management and addressing how social position, networks, relationships and illness work undertaken in domestic settings connect to accessing resources in local communities and health services to support living with long term condition management.
