Kerry Hozhabrafkan

Institution: Division of Psychology and Mental Health, University of Manchester, England.

Supervisory team: Dr Sarah Peters, Dr Patricia Gooding.

Position: PhD student.

Current research: My project aims to investigate how suicide research can be conducted safely and in a way that is acceptable and meaningful to those who participate. Using mixed methods I will explore the experience and impact of participation in both the short and longer term, with the aim of creating stakeholder informed guidelines. PPI will be central to the research.

Research interests:

  • Suicidality measures
  • Suicide research participation
  • PPIE in suicide research

Can help with: I am particularly interested in qualitative research and have experience in thematic analysis methods. As a midwife in my former life, I am always happy if I can help with anything perinatal mental health wise.

What’s essential to your well-being? Good cake! Also spending time with my family, getting outside as much as possible, reading for pleasure, and sleep. Having good friends and colleagues to share and support.
