Dr. Natasha Ginnivan is a research fellow with the UNSW School of Psychology and an Associate Investigator with the Ageing Futures Institute whose focus is on investigating implicit and cultural attitudes to ageing, age stereotypes and self-perceptions of ageing. Her research includes the lived experience of ageing and dementia and ageing in marginalised populations (including ageing prisoners). Her current research is focusing on how age-stereotypes (negative or positive) can affect decision-making about health and retirement issues as well as how social media and ageist discourse impacts on self-perceptions of ageing.
