I am a PhD student in the Social Gerontology Sector at Aging Research Center. I have an MSc in Social Research and Social Statistics from the University of Stirling and a MA (Hons) in Sociology with Quantitative Methods from the University of Glasgow. Before starting the PhD I spent two years working on the Swedish Panel Study of Living Conditions of the Oldest Old - SWEOLD.
The overall aim of my PhD is to investigate various dimensions of the social connectedness of older adults.
The overarching questions are: How has the social connectedness of older adults changed over time? And, how is the social connectedness of older adults impacted by age-related health decline?
I am the course assistant for the Society and Health course in the Psychology program.
