My doctoral research centred on the corporeal, emotional and social experience of ageing and physical activity in rural locations. This involved recruiting, selecting and working with older people in a sensitive manner: collecting, interpreting and presenting data. My post-doctoral research has developed my interests of ageing, well-being (physical, social and psychological), health and social care. More recently I have been involved in research that has centred around the prevention of falling and fracturing in later life. My latest work has explored clinical decision making around the discharge of older people from hospital.
