Ellie is a Research Fellow in the School for Polict Studies. She is currently undertaking an NIHR, School for Social Care Research funded project title 'Covid, Closeness and Care', which explores how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted upon direct care provision in private homes and in residential homes for older people. Specifically, the project will involve examining how the pandemic has impacted upon direct, close, and bodily caregiving along with how care workers negotiate materials/spaces and infection control procedures as they undertake such activities.
