About

Elisabeth's research focuses on understanding the relationships between social networks, social stratification and the construction of vulnerability over the lifecourse. She is interested in the negotiation of care and support in older people’s family and community networks and the impacts of migration on these. Her academic background is interdisciplinary, combining anthropology and demography, and her research merges qualitative and quantitative methods, with ethnography informing the design and interpretation of survey sources.

Between 2015 and 2019, Elisabeth was Chair of the Faculty Research Ethics Committee and still acts as Ethics Advisor to the ERC Projects on “Emergent Ethics of Drone Violence” (Southampton University) and “SmartPhonesSmartAging” (UCL). She sits on the editorial board of Ageing and Society.

Elisabeth is Senior Tutor, Exams Officer and Academic Integrity Officer for the Gerontology Department.
