Dr Annie Austin

Research Associate

Annie was a Research Associate on the Sustainable Care programme at the University of Sheffield. She was previously at the Centre for Social Ethics and Policy at the University of Manchester, where she undertook postdoctoral research on ‘Living Well with Dementia Together’. That research programme involved in-depth work with carers and recipients of care, and her role at CIRCLE continued this theme. Annie’s core research interest was well-being and policy, and she brought this expertise to her work on the ‘Combining Work and Care’ work package.
