Dr Emma Coles
Emma joined SISCC in 2016 as a Research Fellow, based at the Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions Research Unit, University of Stirling.
Emma has worked on qualitative research projects on a wide range of topics, including health inequalities, disability, social inclusion and community planning. She spent 6 years working on the Scottish Government-funded Smile4Life oral health and homelessness project at the University of Dundee, during which time she completed her PhD on homelessness and engagement with health promotion. Prior to joining SISCC, her most recent project was a CNO-funded child health, wellbeing and inequalities study, involving the use of realist synthesis methodology to explore how and why early years interventions work or do not work in given contexts and with what outcomes and effects.
Areas of responsibilities at SISCC: research and evaluation across the Maternal and Child Health and Older People workstreams, and the Context and Behavioural Determinants themes.
