Dr. Carver has a PhD in Sociology and MA in Psychology. Using a social justice and equity perspective, her research is focused on gender, politics, health, aging, surveillance/privacy and the human-animal bond.

As a result, her research follows her interests and concerns, exploring dynamics of power, politics, inequalities and social justice. Specific areas of research include gender, surveillance and privacy, aging well/successfully from a non-biomedical perspective, the human-animal bond and management of abandoned and feral domestic animal populations. Dr. Carver is Post Doctoral Fellow at Queen's University, and a SSHRC-funded researcher with Ageing + Communication + Technologies (ACT).
