Research interests

  • Disability Rights
  • Welfare Policy/Law
  • Medical Anthropology
  • Intersectional Healthcare
  • Advocacy in Healthcare
  • Public Health

Having lived experience of disability, the NHS and the welfare system Ceri has a desire to learn more about them and their workings. Of particular interest is how people with intersecting identities interact with the structures, systems and agencies around them. Especially how we can incorporate their voices to ensure they are not just listened to but heard and incorporate this into practice.
