Joanna Melville

Having gained a BSc Psychology degree from The University of Manchester, I am now pursuing an MSc in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation. I am particularly interested in health inequalities and have extensive experience in campaigning across a range of issues such as NHS privatization, provision of sex and relationships education, and poverty alleviation. Having worked with adults with aphasia, and those with learning disabilities and autism, I have a particular interest in tailoring health information to those with additional communication needs. During my undergraduate studies, I undertook a number of research internships in both applied and academic settings, including producing a report in conjunction with local Healthwatch on the experiences of people living with Fibromyalgia. My previous research has investigated relapse within African-Caribbean people living with Schizophrenia, and the role of context upon communication development in children.
