Steven Schmidt

Researcher, Associate Professor

Personal profile


I am an associate professor in medical psychology and Group Leader of the Applied Gerontology Research Group. I am also the Coordinator of the Centre for Ageing and Supportive Environments (CASE).  My research primarily focuses on the relationships among the environment, health/function, and psychosocial factors in the ageing population. I predominantly take a public health approach in combination with inter- and trans-disciplinary teams. To increase the relevance and impact of research findings, most projects include active user involvement (e.g. government agencies, policy makers, industry, older people, etc.).

I am involved with a number of research projects (see projects tab for complete list) and PI for three ongoing research projects: “HoT-Age: Experienced housing aspects and life changes: Good ageing in one's own home”, “Transdisciplinary research to optimize active and healthy ageing in and out of the home,” and “Technologies in the home to support independence and well-being while ageing: “The New Normal?” post pandemic.”
