Dr. Carver has a PhD in Sociology from Queen's University and MA in Psychology from Carleton University. At a personal level, and in her primary research, she believes that we should take a stand when we see the need for change. As a result, her research follows her interests and concerns, exploring inequity and social justice, surveillance and privacy, aging from a non-biomedical perspective, the human-animal bond as well as issues concerning wild, abandoned and feral domestic non-human animal populations. She has taught at Queen's University since 2015. Dr. Carver was a Post Doctoral Fellow with the SSHRC-funded Ageing + Communication + Technologies (ACT) from July 2017 to June 2019.
