Christopher Elsey

Lecturer in Health and Well Being in Society, De Montfort University

Dr Christopher Elsey is currently a VC2020 Lecturer in Health and Well Being in the School of Allied Health Sciences at De Montfort University. Methodologically his research primarily utilises video recordings to investigate work-place practices, activities and sites of learning, informed by the sociological research traditions of ethnomethodology, conversation analysis and symbolic interactionism. The worksite settings analysed to date include medical consultations (e.g. GP, Memory Clinics), air force communication and military inquiries, and an educational setting for adults with learning difficulties. Currently he is researching professional sport and mental health, and medical neutrality in armed conflict situations.
