University Research Fellow
Adelaide, South Australia
I am a University Research Fellow (2017-19) in the School of Social Sciences and I am a member of the Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning and affiliated with the Hugo Centre for Migration and Population Research. I have a PhD in Geography, Environment and Population from the University of Adelaide. My main research interest is in the field of gerontology with a focus on older people, community connectedness, the built environment and social networks. This work has encompassed examining inter-generational family ties, ageing and migration, age friendly communities, and demographic change in rural and regional Australia.
