Biography

Biography:
Kieran Walsh is Professor of Ageing & Public Policy and Director of the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology (ICSG), National University of Ireland Galway. Kieran has extensive experience in ageing and public policy and interdisciplinary social gerontology research and has published extensively within the field of ageing. Before taking up the role of Director of the ICSG, he served as Project Director of Project Lifecourse within the Institute for Lifecourse and Society, a €1.5 million three-year programme of work dedicated to capturing the subjective realities of children and youth, older people and people with disabilities in their neighbourhoods and communities. With a track record of working closely with senior levels of public policy and professional practice, Kieran is focused on translating research into real-world impact and integrating this experience in the design of impactful research and teaching programmes. He has played a leading role in the development of international multi-site and interdisciplinary research studies. Kieran’s research interests and expertise focus on: social exclusion in later life; the relative nature of disadvantage in cross-national contexts; place and life-course transitions; and informal and formal infrastructures of care. Kieran is also Chair of the European COST Action CA15122 on ‘Reducing Old-Age Social Exclusion’ (ROSEnet – www.rosenetcost.com), which has over 180 members from 41 different countries. With objectives that address critical gaps in research, policy, and international interdisciplinary research capacity, ROSEnet aims to overcome fragmentation in conceptual innovation on old-age exclusion across the life course, in order to address the research-policy disconnect and tackle social exclusion amongst older people.

External Collaborators
Much of the research work I have been involved with in the ICSG has required collaboration with industry partners, stakeholder organisations and academic colleagues and institutions. The following is a summary of those collaborations and of the context in which they have occurred. Intel Corporation: As a precursor to the ICSG’s involvement in the Technology Research for Independent Living (TRIL) project I worked in collaboration with TRIL PIs from Intel Corporation on the social-audit of assistive technology for older people in Ireland. International Project Partners: The research on the role of migrant care workers in ageing societies was completed in conjunction with colleagues from the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS - University of Oxford), the Oxford Institute of Ageing (University of Oxford), the Institute for the study of International Migration (Georgetown University) and the Community Health Research Unit (Ottawa University). This is an on-going collaboration, which has also led to an application being made to the ESRC-DFID joint research funding scheme with colleagues in COMPAS on the globalisation of care drain: migration, ageing and welfare development for older people left behind. HARC and SEADRC Partners: Several of my projects (HARC and social exclusion and ageing in diverse rural communities - SEADRC) are cross-border research initiatives involving academic colleagues and stakeholder partners. These collaborations involve colleagues from the ICSG, Geography in NUIG, the Institute of Spatial and Environmental Planning (Queen’s University), the Centre for Health Improvement (Queen’s University), the Rural Community Network (stakeholder organisation - Tyrone), FORUM (stakeholder organisation - Letterfrack, Galway) and the Public Health Agency Northern Ireland. This collaboration stemmed from the HARC research network and has already led to further funding success in the form of the SEADRC project.International Network on Rural Ageing and International Working Groups on Operationalising Social Exclusion: I work closely with colleagues from universities and institutes in a number of world regions on two collaborative initiatives concerning the development of an International Network on Rural Ageing and concerning the operationalisation of age-related social exclusion. These individuals include colleagues from North America, Africa and Europe and come from Swansea University, University of Alberta; the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute; University of Lapland; Newcastle University; La Trobe University; Ashesi University. <!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:"Cambria Math"; panose-1:2 4 5 3 5 4 6 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:roman; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-1610611985 1107304683 0 0 159 0;} /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-unhide:no; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; margin:0cm; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:EN-GB; mso-fareast-language:EN-US;} p.Default, li.Default, div.Default {mso-style-name:Default; mso-style-unhide:no; mso-style-parent:""; margin:0cm; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; mso-layout-grid-align:none; text-autospace:none; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman","serif"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; color:black; mso-ansi-language:EN-GB; mso-fareast-language:EN-GB;} .MsoChpDefault {mso-style-type:export-only; mso-default-props:yes; font-size:10.0pt; mso-ansi-font-size:10.0pt;
