Personal profile


Emilie is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Health Resilience and Implementation Science (CHRIS), Australian Institute of Health Innovation (AIHI). She received her PhD in Sociology from UNSW Australia in 2018. Drawing on multiple qualitative methods and social theory, her research examined how intimate examinations are taught to Australian medical students and using this as a case study, how students are taught to navigate their relations and interactions with patients. Emilie is currently working on a multi-methods project in the social experience of refractory (drug-resistant) epilepsy treatment and service delivery. She is also investigating how space affects the work of staff members in terms of productivity, wellbeing and safety within a gastroenterology surgical unit. Finally, Emilie is investigating the perspectives of potential cochlear implant users, their support network members, and referring agents on how a randomised control trial should be designed and conducted to ensure stakeholders’ perspectives are represented, and their information needs are met.
