Dr Hazel Marzetti
Hazel Marzetti (she/her) is currently a Research Associate on the Suicide in/as Politics project funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The project uses an interdisciplinary approach, situated between sociology and political studies, to investigate how suicide is constructed and represented in political discourses and policy documents. This project uses a range of qualitative methods of enquiry including arts-based, creative approaches and critical policy analysis.
Prior to this current post-doctoral position, Hazel undertook her doctoral studies at the University of Glasgow's MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit. Her doctoral studies used qualitative research interviews to seek better understandings of young lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT+) people's suicidal thoughts and attempts in Scotland.
Hazel's research interests centre on critical suicide studies, LGBT+ mental health, the role of emotions in research practices, and qualitative approaches to health research.
