Dr Michael Flexer

Postdoctoral Research Fellow


I am the publicly engaged research fellow working on the Wellcome-funded 'Waiting Times' project led by Professor Laura Salisbury (Exeter) and Dr Lisa Baraitser (Birkbeck).

My PhD at University of Leeds was in the semiotics of 'schizophrenia' and was cross-supervised by Professor Stuart Murray in the School of English and Professor Allan House in the Institute of Health Sciences.

I worked on a post-doc project with Professor Brian Hurwitz at King's College, London, analysing post-WWII published medical case reports, and we hope to publish a paper of our findings in 2018.

I have taught psycholinguistics at Sheffield Hallam University, drama and Shakespeare at University of Leeds and worked as Teaching Fellow at Imperial College, London on the BSc in Medical Sciences with Humanities, Philosophy and Law.
