Juliet is a visual artist, carer, and academic researcher with a strong interest in exploring the terrain that juxtaposes the visual arts and science, particularly medical science and related humanities.
She has a AHRC PhD in photography from the University of Sunderland and her thesis explored the visual representation of the invisible illness Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). Adopting a participatory methodology, Juliet worked with ME sufferers to create visual and textual portrayals of sufferers’ illness experience.
Juliet is currently exploring (via EngageFMS: Patient & Public Engagement & Involvement), the visualisation of chronic illness as part of an arts and medical science collaboration with Newcastle University’s Medical and Creative Arts departments.
Juliet is also honorary treasurer for the Royal Photographic Society’s Medical Imaging Group and a trustee for the charity ME North East.
