Maja Emilie Fuglsang Palmer is a Teaching Fellow in Gerontology at the University of Southampton.

I qualified with First Class Honours as an accredited Human Nutritionist (BSc Human Nutrition) in 2012 from London Metropolitan University.

I went on to do an MSc in Public Health at the University of Southampton. During my MSc I focused my research on older people and wrote my dissertation titled: ‘Older Men’s Health and Community Interventions’.

My PhD research focussed on the pathways into informal care provision using the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing waves 4 to 7. I have undertaken both cross-sectional and longitudinal data analysis to explore the predictors and effects of informal care provision in order to better guide policies to support informal care providers.

I am interested in the health and well-being of older people. In addition to social policies affecting informal care providers.
