Dr Cyril Eshareturi is a Lecturer in Public Health with research interests revolving around offender health, patient safety, domestic violence and quality and service improvement in public health and social care.

Cyril is skilled in the use of The Silences Framework which is a theoretical framework for investigating the health care needs of marginalised populations and facilitating the exploration of under researched issues towards addressing uni-dimensional presentation of evidence. This skill enables Cyril to design and conduct research which gains theoretically by situating power with the researched, thus, enabling their 'silences' to be heard, explored and brought to light.

Cyril’s most recent research entitled ‘mapping the offender health pathway: challenges and opportunities for support through community nursing’ was commissioned by the Burdett Trust for Nursing. The study was theoretically underpinned by The Silences Framework and aimed at the provision of a nurse-led intervention in a manner and way which was non-stigmatising and importantly, offender led. Moving forward, Cyril hopes to adopt the use of The Silences Framework in theoretically underpinning and potentially informing a range of health interventions.

Prior to joining the University of Bradford, Cyril was the BSc public health course leader at the University of Suffolk and a researcher at the University of Wolverhampton.
