Natalya researches the everyday practices of living with chronic disease.  She examines how people with chronic illnesses translate medical advice into everyday self-care practices and is interested in the dynamics of health care provision from the perspectives of patients and their families. She was a co-convenor of the TASA Emotions and Affect thematic group in 2013-4 and the NSW co-convener of the TASA Health thematic group in 2012-13. Her PhD examined how people make sense of kidney failure in online discussion boards.
