Dr. Natasha Ginnivan

Biography

Natasha Ginnivan is a postdoctoral fellow with the UNSW School of Art & Design whose research is focussed on the experience of ageing and societal attitudes towards ageing. Natasha’s PhD (with the Centre for Research on Ageing, Health & Wellbeing, ANU) research investigated cross-cultural attitudes to ageing and was supported in-part by the Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research (CEPAR, UNSW). After the submission of her PhD in 2016, Natasha continued working with CEPAR as a postdoctoral researcher from 2016-2018, receiving several travel grants (from CEPAR and also from the School of Public Health & Community Medicine, UNSW) to present her work on ageing in prison at overseas conferences including presenting at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing Research in 2017. Natasha remains an Associate Investigator (AI) with CEPAR on several projects and is continuing to research and contribute to UNSW projects including the School of Art & Design’s Australian Ageing Experience Project [AAEP] lived experience of ageing, an ambitious multidisciplinary project that brings together researchers in psychology, neuropsychology, medicine and experimental art. In addition, ageing within vulnerable populations remains a focus of Natasha’s research including pathways of care for those who are homeless and those at risk of dementia.
