Candice Whitaker

Hi There!

I’m Candice, a final 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 delighted to be part of the PsyPAG committee and represent postgraduates interested in qualitative methods. Please do get in touch with any queries, issues, opinions, or anything you would like to discuss.

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

I look forward to hearing from you!
