Christina Buse is a Research Fellow at the University of York. Her research interests include embodiment, ageing, dementia, material culture and technology use. She is currently working on the ESRC funded ‘Buildings in the Making’ project with Sarah Nettleton, Daryl Martin and colleagues, which aims to develop a sociological understanding of the practices of healthcare architects, focusing on the design of care homes for later life, and exploring how knowledge about health and social care is translated into the built environment.

After completing a degree in Sociology and Psychology in Liverpool, Chrissy then completed an MSc in Sociological Research in Manchester. She then completed her PhD at the University of York, examining the use of information and communication technologies in retirement, and the location of technology use within ‘embodied techno-biographies’. She has since worked as a researcher at the Universities of Leeds and Kent on various projects concerning the embodied health and social care needs of older people and family carers. Her recent research includes the Dementia and Dress project with Julia Twigg.
