Research Interests

Global population ageing means that it is now more important than ever to understand the factors that promote healthy ageing, engagement with life post-retirement, and intergenerational solidarity. Tim Windsor's research uses both long-term and micro-longitudinal data to study developmental processes that contribute to ageing well. Together with national and international collaborators from Europe and the United States, he focuses on both basic research concerned with psychological and social processes that facilitate coping and resilience, as well as applied research focusing on promoting late life well-being and reducing ageism.      

Tim is Director of the Generations Research Initiative in the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work at Flinders. The Generations mission is:

  • To improve the health and wellbeing of older people through research that increases the understanding of individual and societal ageing
  • To enhance the social capital and resilience of communities by fostering intergenerational connections
  • To contribute to the development of better services for older adults receiving care in the community, and in residential care
  • To engage with relevant academic, government and non-government organisations to inform policy and program development and service delivery.
  • To provide a high-quality research and training environment to attract and build capacity of students, post-doctoral and early career researchers in gerontology
  • To maintain and enhance collaborations with national and international scholars
