Patricia Irizar


Personal profile


I joined the Department of Sociology at the University of Manchester in August 2021, after completing my PhD at the University of Liverpool. I joined the Sociology department as a Research Associate for the Centre on the Dyanmics of Ethnicity (CoDE), to investigate ethnic inequalities in COVID-19 health outcomes. I am now continuing this work through my Simon Fellowship, to investigate the impact of the pandemic on mental health among ethnic minority people. My wider research interests include the relationship between alcohol use and mental health (particularly in the context of trauma exposure); improving treatment pathways for co-occurring alcohol use and mental health; and identifying occupational groups at risk of problematic alcohol use and poor mental health. I utilise both quantitative and qualitative methods and analysis in my research.
