Dr. Dawn-Marie Walker is a mixed methods researcher, with vast experience of research in mental health. She is also very interested in emergent research technologies and in e-health and is experienced in developing on-line learning resources. Dawn’s undergraduate degree was in psychology, after which she completed an MSc in statistics and then a PhD looking at the cognitive function in children with psychosis. With a huge amount of experience in conducting health services research, she edited a textbook: An Introduction to Health Services Research (2014). SAGE. She mainly teaches statistics and quantitative research methods at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Being able to conduct empirical health research is a way of (hopefully) making the world a better place.

I am a mixed methods researcher, with vast experience of research in mental health.  My undergraduate degree was in psychology, after which I completed an MSc in statistics and then a PhD looking at the cognitive function in children with psychosis.  I am also very interested in emergent research technologies and in e-health and am experienced in developing on-line learning resources.  I am interested in Public Patient Involvement and am interested in research in complementary medicine and the placebo.

With a huge amount of experience in conducting health services research, I recently edited a textbook: An Introduction to Health Services Research (2014). SAGE.
