Emilie Wildman is a Senior Research Associate at Rare Disease Research Partners (RDRP). In her role, Emilie carries out research to develop a better understanding about the experiences of people living with rare diseases and their caregivers.
Before joining the RDRP team, Emilie completed a PhD at King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience. Her doctoral research explored violence in family and caregiving relationships, particular focusing on family violence by individuals living with a severe mental illness. Emilie also has an MSc in Research Methods in Psychology from University College London, and a BSc in Psychology from the University of Nottingham.
Emilie believes that in order to improve the lives of people affected by rare diseases, it is essential to elevate the voices of patients and caregivers with lived experience. Emilie is therefore excited to have the opportunity to work closely with the rare disease community, and to contribute to improving the outcomes of affected families by conducting vital research.
