Yvette Vermeer is an Early Stage Researcher part of the INDUCT network. She is working on the project ‘Surveillance and empowerment’, supervised by Professor Paul Higgs and Georgina Charlesworth at University College London (UK). She has an MSc degree in Management, Economics and Consumer Studies from Wageningen University (Netherlands, 2015) and a bachelor in Commerce from Avans Hogeschool (Netherlands, 2011). In addition, she worked in marketing and communication for various businesses (i.e. healthcare, pharmaceutical). Her research interests cover dementia, caregivers, technology, products and design, consumer behaviour and empowerment. Yvette’s research aim is to understand how surveillance technologies are designed and marketed, and how this impacts the experiences and needs of people with dementia and carers. An interdisciplinary media literacy approach will be used in the UK, Sweden and the Netherlands. Hereby current surveillance designs on the market will be analysed and categorised, and questions will be answered of who the producers are, and how their products and media messages are received by audiences.

Research Summary

Examine the nature of surveillance technologies (ST) in use with people with dementia and carers, and investigate the assumptions lying behind them. A review of current ST was analysed in the United Kingdom, Sweden, and the Netherlands. Discussions took place with experts (ESRs) about ST. Likewise discussions with family carers, and people with dementia will be conducted about their thoughts, attitudes towards, and possible engagement with ST. Altogether the market of ST with all its involved actors as a whole will be analysed for empowering people with dementia and carers.
