I am a critical gerontologist and a health services and policy researcher. My research program is broadly focused on health equity, aging, and stigma in rehabilitation, home care and long-term care settings. In my research I draw on critical theories and methods of inquiry from across diverse fields of study to analyze the intersection of lived experiences of care with policies, practices, and philosophies.
The following three areas are my main research foci:
- supporting sexual and gender diversity in care settings
- living well with dementia and dementia care
- use of intelligent technologies in home, community, and long-term care settings
