Rebecca joined the University of Southampton in January 2023. Before joining the University, Rebecca worked at the University of Warwick in the School of Law, Medical School and the Institute of Advanced Teaching and Learning (IATL).
Rebecca has a LLB (Warwick, 2016) and a PhD (Warwick, 2019/20). Rebecca's PhD investigated the extent to which children participate in their healthcare and the practical and legal barriers that children experience when seeking to meaningfully participate in decisions about their health care. This research led to the design of initiatives to facilitate children's meaningful participation in their healthcare.
In 2019, Rebecca was awarded a competitive IAS/IATL Early Career Fellowship where she produced publications out of her PhD work, strengthened her interdisciplinary research interests, taught law to an interdisciplinary audience and developed the research ‘lived experiences’ methodology into a teaching pedagogy from which she is creating teaching and learning materials for higher education tutors.
In 2021/2022 Rebecca was a Wellcome Trust Broadening Horizons Mentee.
