An experienced qualitative researcher, Luke has undertaken research into various topics relating to health and wellbeing. Prior to joining WISERD, he worked at Cardiff University on the NISCHR funded Patient Safety and Healthcare Quality Registered Research Group (PSHQ RRG). Prior to this he held two research positions at King’s College London, looking at patient experiences of continuity of care and the organizational regulation of innovative clinical procedures respectively. A social scientist by background, Luke completed his PhD in sociology at the University of York in 2008. His MSc in Medical Anthropology was completed at University College London and his BSc in Social Anthropology at the University of Sussex.

Research Interests

Luke’s research interests comprise a wide range of topics that can be broadly contrued as qualitative and mixed methods approaches to the study of health and wellbeing, particularly from the perspectives of different stakeholders, such as patients and service users. His research to date has principally been within the topics of continuity of care, care quality and patient safety, the innovation and regulation of clinical procedures, patient involvement and patient experiences of chronic illness.

Current Research

Luke is currently working as the Cardiff Research Fellow on the All Wales Academic Social Care Research Collaboration (ASCC). His specific project investigates the potential scope for innovative delivery of adult social care by means of licensing, social enterprises, co-operatives and not for profit organisations, and he will be conducting comparative case studies on such models of social care provision in Wales.
