The Digital Health Generation

Dr Sarah C. Lewis

Sarah is a Research Associate on the project.  Since completing her PhD at Loughborough University in 2014, Sarah has been involved in a number of research projects, including the ESRC funded Space for Sharing project, which looked at trust, empathy and sharing in online contexts. Working at the University of Lincoln with Professor Dave Boothroyd, Sarah was able to expand the knowledge and expertise gained during her PhD research, a grounded theory study of support on online anorexia forums, to different online platforms, and illustrate the use of case study methodology for the successful study of related online environments. 

Sarah has published work on online drugs culture and methods, as well as being keen to attend and organise academic events, especially those that seek to develop links across subject fields and disciplines. 

Sarah's enduring research interests are in the sociology of health and illness, online support and communication, methodology, gender studies, adolescence and public health.
