Qualitative Research Fellow

Giorgia Previdoli

Giorgia is based at the York Trials Unit, University of York. She is a qualitative research fellow, with a special interest in ethnography and participatory methods. Giorgia is passionate about addressing health inequalities and enjoys using creative methods to enhance engagement in research and disseminate findings beyond academia. Within the ActEarly Healthy Livelihoods theme, she is working on the NIHR-funded Fair Food Futures UK project, looking at the role played by organisations providing support with food in reducing food insecurity in Bradford and Tower Hamlets, London. In 2021 Giorgia joined the NIHR Yorkshire and Humber Patient Safety Research Collaboration. There she conducted the co-designing of an intervention to enhance medicine self-management in the older frail population. Before then, Giorgia worked at the Centre for Applied Dementia Studies, University of Bradford, where she researched the impact of COVID on care home staff and supported the involvement of people living with dementia in research. Giorgia’s doctoral research took place in Italy and it was an ethnographic study exploring political consumerism networks.
