Tania Wiseman

Associate Professor, Head of Therapies , Faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Science, Swansea University

I am an associate professor in occupational therapy. I qualified as an occupational therapist in 1996 at the University of Brighton, after successfully completing a degree in biological sciences at the University of Sussex. My work in the fields of physical and mental health with adults of all ages was complemented by a Masters degree in occupational therapy in 1999.

I am programme lead for Occupational Therapy and Head of Therapies at Swansea University.

Research interests are focused on leisure in later life. I lead a leisure in later life research group, with several Masters students presenting at national conferences and some peer reviewed publications. I completed a PhD exploring leisure in 21st century later life in September 2019. In addition to this I am active in developing sustainable health curricula, and combating ageism in health professions training.
