Dr Rosa Mendizabal-Espinosa profile picture
  • Research Fellow
  • IOE - Social Research Institute
  • UCL Institute of Education

I am research associate at the Social Science Research Unit (SSRU), UCL Social Research Institute since 2018. Prior to my career in academia, I worked with children with special educational needs (0 to 6 years old), designing and delivering child-led intervention programmes and advising mainstream pre-school and primary schools in my native country Mexico.

Research Summary

My research interests include sociology of childhood; children's rights in relation to healthcare; children's palliative care; and research ethics. I have a particular interest in baby-centred care and parental involvement in neonatal healthcare (intensive care units), and in shared decision-making in neonatal and paediatric healthcare.

I employ a range of qualitative methods including ethnographic and case study approaches with children, young people and healthcare professionals. I have a particular interest in applied critical realism. More recently, I joined the EPPI-Centre at SSRU, and have developed an interest in systematic review methods for healthcare policy and practice, including systematic mapping and living maps.
