Catherine Montgomery is a medical sociologist in the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society.  Her interests lie at the intersection of the social and biomedical sciences, with primary expertise in the sociology of science and technology in health intervention research.

She has conducted research into how methods travel in global health research, the rise of adaptive design clinical trials, and the ways in which patient experience data are mobilised in the NHS.
