Carolyn Wilson-Nash together with Julie Tinson, both from Stirling University, published a research paper entitled ‘I am the master of my fate’: digital technology paradoxes and the coping strategies of older consumers.

Carolyn joins us to talk more about her research and the impact technology has on older people’s lives.
