Dr Wendy Wrapson

Senior Research Fellow
Auckland University of Technology

 

Dr Wendy Wrapson has a background in social psychology and health psychology, and undertook her PhD at the University of Auckland. Since then, Wendy has held research positions in the UK, Australia and at the University of Auckland, before joining AUT in 2013.  Some of Wendy’s recent work has focused on how internet-based technologies can enable seniors to maintain and develop social connectedness.  Her research has shown, however, that older adults in aged care may be missing out on the digital revolution and that the requirements of this ‘hidden’ population must not be ignored.
