I am a PhD candidate in Medical Anthropology funded by the Durham Doctoral Studentship. My research explores the use of telehealth in mental healthcare in New Mexico, USA. More specifically, I aim to uncover the ways in which 'virtual care' affords new materialities, spaces and mobilities in healthcare and what this means for the ways people understand health and navigate healthcare systems.
