Biography

I am leading a program of research investigating how individuals with lived experience of suicide are kept safe. There are two broad research areas we are investigating:

- keeping safe online

- keeping safe when an individual has moved into a suicide readiness state

Our focus is on those who have survived a suicide attempt as survivors are often an overlooked population for suicide research yet they are most at risk of taking their own life.

The keeping safe online is the largest research area and our interest is on who uses online spaces for suicide related reasons and how do they use these online spaces. We are interested in what occurs in these spaces, how these can be safe spaces or made safe, and how are those at risk moved to a place of safety. Our interest is not on whether the space is a risky place to talk about suicide but on how they can be safe places to talk about suicidal experiences and how are these spaces being used to talk about suicide.

We use real-life data to investigate the above phenomena and adopt a variety of research frameworks that include Ecological Momentary Assessment, Conversation Analysis, Discursive Psychology, Narrative Analysis, Thematic Analysis, Survey Designs, Scoping Reviews, and Membership Category Analysis.
