Shifting research culture and practice for a better fit with contemporary British society
This workshop has been organised by the Wellbeing, Health and Communities (WHC) Pathway and is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded PhD and MA Social Research students within the WRDTP’s seven partner universities. Whilst this workshop is aimed at WHC Pathway students, PGRs from all seven interdisciplinary Pathways are welcome to attend.
This keynote lecture will explore and debate how to shift research culture and practice to reflect contemporary British society and thereby improving equality, diversity and inclusion.
Dr Tanvi Rai
I am a mixed methods researcher with a PhD in public health. I am a co-applicant and researcher on an ESRC-funded project exploring the experiences of people and families affected by Covid-19, with a focus on how the pandemic has worsened existing social and health inequalities. Since April 2021, I am also leading a NIHR RfPB-funded project (NOURISH-UK) exploring decision-making about infant feeding among mothers and birthing parents living with HIV in the UK. I am a tutor on the Oxford Qualitative Courses.
