Summary

Biography

In 2019 I completed my PhD at the University of Bristol, as part of the ReMemBr Research Group, supervised by Dr Liz Coulthard & Prof. Risto Kauppinen. I used neuropsycholgical cognitive assessments and structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to explore early biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease in older people most at-risk of developing dementia. More details on the current study can be found here.

I am now working as a postdoctoral Research Associate in the same group, continuing my work on early Alzheimer's disease biomarkers, as well as exploring the role of sleep in brain health. 

 

I graduated from the University of Manchester in 2015 with a first class (Hons) degree in Biomedical Sciences. During this course I spent one year working in the CNS Research department of Boehringer Ingelheim in South Germany.
