Social Inclusion and Health
What attracted you to the Succeed and Lead Fellowship?
There are not many interdisciplinary postdoc positions in health in Ireland – if any. It really suited my profile! I was attracted by the opportunity to undertake a post-doctoral fellowship with a strong inter-disciplinary focus.
I am coordinating an interdisciplinary research team that aims to conduct arts-based participatory research on the postnatal mental health experiences of migrant and non-migrant women in Ireland.
