Dr Andrea Winkelmann-Gleed is a Senior Research Fellow with expertise in social inclusion, demographic change, health care employment and international migration related to the employment of marginalized workers, including migrants, people with intellectual disabilities and older workers. She complements her research by lecturing on Sociology related to public health and social issues.

Her PhD research was funded by an ESRC Studentship grant and investigated the integration of migrant nurses, including refugees into UK based health care employment. She applied a complementary research strategy by combining in-depth interviews with self-administered survey data. She subsequently published the book: 'Migrant Nurses, motivation, integration, contribution' based on her thesis.

Since Nov. 2004 she has been based at the WLRI where she has managed two ESF funded projects investigating approaches to the management of demographic change with its impact on workforce ageing - details below.

Andrea also undertakes consultancy work and has contributed to projects and programmes based in East African countries: Southern Sudan, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Rwandan refugees in Tanzania. She currently holds a position as board member for an international relief and development NGO. She is a Chartered Member of the CIPD.
