Professor Sue Yeandle
I joined the University of Sheffield in 2015 after working at the University of Leeds (2006–15) and other universities. My work focuses on care, work, gender and family, with a special interest in the social dimensions of technologies used in caring contexts.
In 2011–14 I led AKTIVE, a TSB-funded academic-industry study of older people with care needs using technology at home. I directed two DH-funded national evaluation studies of support for carers in 2008–11 and have collaborated on numerous EU-funded studies.
I have also given expert advice to the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies, ICT-AGE, House of Commons Work and Pensions Committee and PM's National Carers Strategy Task Force. I hold a WUN award on 'Sustainable Care' and work closely with Carers UK, Eurocarers and Employers for Carers.
