Projects per year
I work on participatory and design based research that foregrounds experiences of ageing, culture, connectivity and digital inclusion. I am particularly interested in sociodigital futures and questions of social justice.
I am currently running an UKRI Healthy Ageing funded research project ‘Connecting through Culture as we Age’. I am co-investigator on the ESRC Centre for Sociodigital Futures. The Centre is a five year programme of work bringing together world-leading interdisciplinary expertise to explore sociodigital futures in the making to support fair and sustainable ways of life.
I am particularly interested in feminist and post human approaches to researching digital inclusion, (in particular ageing and digital technologies), just futures, and participatory methods. I develop methodologically innovative approaches to researching with minoritized communities, often working in collaboration with artists, technologists, civil society organisations and policy-makers. I have published widely in the field of ageing and technologies, on participatory methods and co-designing technologies with minoritized communities.
