Dr Paul K. Miller, PhD

Biography

After studying as an undergraduate student at the University of Surrey, and obtaining a Masters degree at Lancaster University, Paul received his PhD – also from Lancaster University – in 2004. His doctoral investigations, pertaining to communication in primary care around the topics of depression and suicide, led fairly naturally to a Research Fellowship at Lancaster University’s Institute for Health Research, working on a number of projects around health inequalities, secure services and end-of-life care. A two-year teaching fellowship in the Sociology department at Lancaster followed and, in 2007, Paul moved on to the newly-founded University of Cumbria. He's still there now, as an Associate Professor of Social Psychology, based in the Institute of Health.

Paul’s core research interests relate to language and communication across a range of healthcare and allied social environments, with a side-line in sport psychology to lighten the mood. Recently he has published on stigmatised diagnoses, group identities, conversation analysis, decision-making, general linguistic philosophy and discursive psychology. Substantively, he is increasingly exploring the interpersonal dimensions of medical imaging practice, and is a founding member of the Social Issues in Medical Imaging (SIMI) research group, alongside Dr Lisa Booth and Charles Sloane.
