Personal profile

Research interests

My main research interests lie within the broad field of cognitive psychology. I am particularly interested in cognitive changes in healthy ageing and neurodegenerative disorders, as well as interventions that may delay or postpone cognitive decline or improve cognitive abilities in older adults and patients diagnosed with neurodegenerative disorders.

Biography

I completed my psychology training in Melbourne, Australia. In 2008, I graduated with an Honours in Psychology from the University of Melbourne. In 2013, I completed a PhD in Psychology at Monash University. My PhD thesis investigated dual tasking in healthy ageing and Huntington's disease. In addition to my psychology qualifications, I hold qualifications in languages, sports journalism, personal training and dancing.

Roles & Responsibilities

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the project The Intervention Factory. This 3-year project aims to identify and test a range of real-world cognitive interventions using existing class-based activities. More information about The Intervention Factory can be found at www.healthyageing.hw.ac.uk
