Enhancing Networks of Care
Postdoctoral Fellow
University of Edinburgh
2023 - Present



Focusing on supporting healthier and more resilient networks of care, this project investigates how we can enhance the practices, knowledge, and tools available in later life. With three core threads, I am exploring the role of community-led, service-enabled, and technology-driven care networks.


Project - Improving Technology-supported Care Networks

Project - Designing for Ecologies of Care in Later Life

Project - Developing Support Pathways with Caregivers
☞ Briefing (2023): Lessons from Engaging Informal Carers ︎ ☞ Grant (2023-2024): Wellcome Trust iTPA Springboard Grant




I acknowledge the peoples on whose lands I conduct my work, and respectfully acknowledge Ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging.
