Dr Joann Wilkinson

Formerly at Lancaster University


I am a social scientist working in Educational Research at Lancaster University.


Current Research

I am a qualitative researcher for the ESRC funded project Gender Diversification of the Early Years Workforce: Recruiting, Supporting and Retaining Male Practitioners.


Research Interests

My research interests include gender, work and organizational health; reproduction and reproductive technologies; self-tracking and data practices. My doctoral research examined women’s practices of ovulation biosensing when trying to conceive and was part of an international, multidisciplinary study on health biosensing, supported by Intel Research Labs.

Career Details

I have worked on a number of different social science projects, both at Lancaster University and internationally, including studies on gender and ageing in plastic surgery, self-tracking devices for older people living with chronic health conditions, the provision of local services to reduce social isolation and lonelines in older populations in Cumbria, improving palliative and end of life care, and the role of army reservists in the British Armed Forces.
