Mr Simon C Ashe BSc (Hons), MSc

Associate Lecturer and Doctoral Researcher


I am a Doctoral Researcher investigating the impact of social media on patterns of end-of-life and bereavement behaviour and a lecturer on the BSc Psychology and MSc Health Psychology courses.

My other research roles focus upon the experience of living with chronic illnesses. I am an ongoing member of the Fibromyalgia research team at Hallam, and have previous experience working with people with cystic fibrosis. This research forms the basis of my training to become an HCPC-registered Health Psychologist.
