Ally Gibson is a research fellow in the School of Public Health and Community Medicine (SPHCM) at UNSW Sydney, Australia. She is primarily involved in managing the Qualitative Research Network Hub in SPHCM, a new initiative providing expertise in qualitative research methodology to researchers both at UNSW and beyond through consultation services, seminars, and workshops.

Ally has ten years' experience conducting a range of qualitative research projects relating to health, illness, and the practice of medicine. She is particularly interested in: people's experience and responses to pressing health challenges or global health risks (e.g., antimicrobial resistance, cancer); sexual and reproductive health; issues of gender, sexuality and identity; concerns and experiences of inequity, marginalisation, and vulnerability in health. 

Ally welcomes the opportunity to share knowledge and experience in conducting qualitative research in health. She has presented widely on different forms of data collection (e.g. interviews, focus groups, visual methods) and methods of analysis (with particular expertise in discourse analysis and discursive psychology). 

Working across disciplinary lines, she has published in the areas of sociology, infectious diseases, health psychology, women's health, and nursing. Her primary aim in research is to critically analyse understandings and experiences of health, illness and health care, in order to tackle global health concerns affecting society today. 

Ally currently holds an honorary research fellow position at the University of Queensland. She is also the co-convenor for The Australian Sociological Association Health Thematic Group and is an Early Career Representative for the International Society of Critical Health Psychology. She is interested in collaborating with advocates, practitioners, and other researchers in health.
