Peter has a background in Philosophical Theology and Religious Studies. He has been involved in research and teaching in Health Sciences motivated by the philosophical and religious issues raised by the onset and development of Dementia.
As well as continuing to work on the relationship between religion and dementia, he has also worked on a range of projects which concern human spirituality, the interface between religion and health, ageing and/or death. He has an interest in the potential role of religious communities in helping to deliver public health gains.
More recently Peter has developed a focus on digital platforms and systems to enhance social care services and led on a pilot project to profile the market and test a model for a unified digital platform for the offering, selection and evaluation of health and social care services in the home.
In addition to being a member of the British Association for the Study of Spirituality and a Trustee of Age Concern (Birmingham), he is also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and External Examiner for two Universities in the UK. Peter is passionate about bringing together statutory providers, businesses, third sector organisations, and religious and faith communities to work together on shared goals. He supports the development of links with a wide range of collaborators in the UK and internationally to build a richer discourse on health and wellbeing.
The fusion of his background, knowledge & experience with ‘digital’ allows him to bring a unique perspective to the dynamics and understanding of the human-digital discourse.
