Dr Karla Zimpel-Leal (University of Sheffield) welcomes Dr Fiona Macdonald (RMIT University) to talk about her research on care platform models, or uberisation, and her latest publication at the International Journal of Care and Caring titled 'Personalised risk’ in paid care work and the impacts of ‘gig economy’ care platforms. Both draw on their research in the UK and in Australia to highlight careworkers' experiences of working within these models, and the impact of these models on the care market.
