Personal profile


Rose is a PhD researcher in the School of Social Work and an Associate Tutor in the School of Psychology. 

Rose graduated with a first-class degree in Psychology from UEA in 2017. She began a PhD studentship in the School of Social Work in 2018 to pursue research on the experiences of older men in prison.

Key Research Interests and Expertise

Rose’s early experience working with older people led her to become interested in the lives of older men, in particular, the issues relating to care/carers and the role of ageing masculinities.  

Her undergraduate research explored the experiences of men who care for wives with dementia, with a focus on the role of caregiving masculinities in later life. Rose has just begun her PhD research, where she is continuing her research with older men, whilst also incorporating her keen interest in the criminal justice system. This research explores the lived experiences of older prisoners in the East of England. Rose is particularly interested in the role of incarcerated masculinities in older men.
