Research Overview

My main area of expertise is around health and geographical perspectives on ageing. More specifically my research focuses on voluntary and community interventions to support active and healthy ageing; informal (family) care-giving – including male care-giving and the gendered nature of care; the role of technology in supporting older people; and the changing nature of home and community. A second key strand of my work focuses around the therapeutic landscape. This concept embraces the notion that certain environments promote health and wellbeing and is based on understanding how environmental, societal and individual factors work together to preserve health and wellbeing.
