I am Professor of Health Services Research (assisted living research) at the University of Sheffield and Professor of Applied Dementia Research at the University of Bradford. I also have honorary professorial positions at the University of Ulster and Sheffield Hallam University. I am an occupational therapist; having practiced for 13 years before becoming involved in research and am now Fellow of the College of Occupational Therapists in recognition of my contribution to the profession.
My research interests are focused upon improving the quality of life of older people through provision of appropriate interventions, good design and by facilitating participation, reflecting my occupational therapy background. My current and recent projects span the development and evaluation of technologies, design of products and services for later life and the development and evaluation of complex interventions to benefit older people.
