Course coordinator, Università di Bologna

My research area of interest is social gerontology, gerontechnology, social interactionism and ethnomethodology.

My PhD thesis, 'Technology, care and a sense of home: understanding older people’s domestication of Telecare' has investigated how older people experience new care technologies and how care and a sense of home may be modified by remote care technologies.
