I am a first year PhD student in Social Policy at the University of Bristol, researching intergenerational relationships. My research is focused on intergenerational interaction, using (post)qualitative and ethnographic methods to explore the processes involved when different generations are bought together through community intergenerational practice. I am particularly interested in intergenerational interaction involving young children and people living with dementia, and the multi-generational and more-than-human contributions made to foster these relationships.
My current research builds upon a research project undertaken as part of my Masters (MSc) degree in Policy Research at the University of Bristol, which explored the experiences and potential benefits of preschool children's involvement in a non-kin intergenerational programme with people living with dementia. This multi-method qualitative research project developed my interest in making innovative methodological and theoretical contributions to the intergenerational research field, which my PhD aims to achieve.
