Overview

Rich's research is framed by an overarching interest in practices of health, care, and medicine, and how these intersect with peoples ethical and emotional relationships with animals.

Rich’s research at present has involved exploring the dynamic interrelations between health and place, particularly, the roles of animals within various caring and health-promoting practices, seeking to understand how human-animal relations can affect people’s and animals' capacities to thrive and flourish.

Rich joined the Department of Geography in September 2017 as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, part of The Animal Research Nexus: Changing Constitutions of Science, Health and Welfare project, working with Professor Gail Davies and collaborators across several other institutions and disciplines. Rich and Gail's work aims to understand patient and public involvement within practices of animal research. Patient and public involvement seeks to enable patients and members of the public to apply their priorities to the development and delivery of health services and improve the quality and relevance of research by drawing on the lived expertise of individuals affected by the health conditions that research aims to benefit. We are seeking to understand how involvement and engagement activities can be organised in ways that are sensitive to the diverse experiences of lay members, researchers, and others involved, and open up authentic and meaningful conversations.

Rich is also the secretary of the Geographies of Health and Wellbeing Research Group of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).
