Claude has been working in the field of mental health in voluntary and statutory organisations for many years, more recently within Forensic and Rehabilitation NHS services where he has been particularly interested in conducting co-design quality improvement projects. Claude is a 3d year PhD student in the Anthropology department of Goldsmiths, University of London where he is researching the diagnostic process for adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in the UK in collaboration with a Patient Organisation (AADD-UK). His fieldwork was situated within a clinical site as well as with Adult ADHD support groups where he traced the diagnostic process as it takes place between these sites, highlighting the multiple ways that ADHD in adults is conceptualised and enacted through memory and kinship practices. Claude has presented research papers in both psychiatric and social sciences conferences, and published in scientific and anthropological journals.
