Ashley Macleod is currently pursuing her PhD in the field of sexuality and ageing, and is working on the re-conceptualisation of the later-life sexuality construct and the development of a sexuality measurement scale that caters specifically for populations aged 45 and above. See further information on her Older Adult Sexuality and Intimacy Study (OASIS) here.
Ashley completed her Honours in Psychology at Deakin University studying the effect of breast size and hair colour on the perception of sexual intent. She is also employed as a Research Assistant at the Institute for Health and Ageing, working on projects related to family carer wellbeing, men’s health in midlife, and the fall characteristics of older women.
