 anna lavis Dr Anna Lavis is a Medical Anthropologist working as a Research Fellow on the SUPEREDEN Project in the School of Health and Population Sciences at the University of Birmingham. This explores young people’s experiences of a first episode of psychosis and of its treatment in England.

Leading to a thesis entitled “The Boundaries of a Good Anorexic: Exploring Pro-Anorexia on the Internet and in the Clinic”, this research was undertaken at Goldsmiths, University of London. It was funded by the ESRC and won a 2010 Radcliffe-Brown Sutasoma award from the Royal Anthropological Institute.
