Tell us a little about yourself:
I have been working in the dementia field for over 15 years. I was working as Senior Research Fellow before I joined the University of Bradford in November 2018 where I am now an Associate Professor in dementia studies. I am a Fellow of Advance HE. I am an editor for the Cochrane Dementia and Cognitive Improvement group.
My research focuses on improving the quality of life of those affected by dementia. First, through gaining a better understanding of the experiences of those affected by dementia and the factors that affect their quality of life. Second, by developing interventions to improve the quality of life of those affected by dementia. I have a particular interest in the experiences of carers and both positive experiences in providing care and relationship dynamics. I have expertise in cohorts, qualitative methodology, and patient and public involvement. I have been involved in major research studies.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself:
Always happy to talk to people about movies.
Why did you choose to work in dementia?
Stems from an interest in memory and the impact of memory changes on the person and their family members. I’ve been very fortunate to work with people with dementia and carers and through this see research as a way in which that we can help to improve their quality of life.
