Candice Whitaker

Hi There!

I’m Candice, a second year PhD student at Leeds Beckett University, and I’m the PsyPag representative for Qualitative Methods in Psychology.

My PhD research explores male body image and appearance matters employing a range of qualitative methods. The aim of this research is to help gain a deeper understanding of the gender specific body related issues for men, both in terms of their subjective experiences, and wider social discourses surrounding the topic.

I am excited to join the PsyPAG committee to represent postgraduates interested in qualitative methods, and welcome you to get in touch with any queries, issues, opinions, or ideas you would like to discuss.

You can contact me by email: or via Twitter: @cw_whitaker.

I look forward to hearing from you!
