I have a research background in Psychology (Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany) and continued to study at Newcastle University for an M.Sc. in Clinical and Health Psychology & M.Res. in Digital Civics.

My research interest lies in the field of ageing & HCI and I am particularly interested in how older adults can make use of digital and community media as part of their civic participation. As part of my research I have been involved with the launch of the Later Life Audio and Radio Network (LLARN), which aims to strengthen the visibility of older adults as content creators and promotes diverse talk-based content on age & ageing.

In previous quantitative research projects I have looked at well-being and social connectedness in later life in Berlin and investigated social isolation and loneliness in later life with a cross-cultural emphasis comparing large German and English cohort studies (ELSA, DEAS).
