Research Communications Manager
Place of work / study:
Tell us a little about yourself:
Working in the wonderful Research Communications team at Alzheimer’s Society sharing research updates to the Society’s donors and supporters, sharing research findings through the Society’s channels and in the media. Talking directly to the dementia research community about how the Society can support you.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself:
As soon as I do up my seat belt on an aeroplane I fall asleep. I’ve missed many a take off. It’s quite a useful skill but doesn’t make me the most fun travelling companion unless you like being a cushion….
Why did you choose to work in dementia?
I was really interested in the work of Alzheimer’s Society and then sadly have since become personally affected.
What single piece of advice would you give to an early career researcher?
Apply to Alzheimer’s Society for funding! www.alzheimers.org.uk/forresearchers
What book are you reading right now? Would you recommend it?
American Dirt – Jeanine Cummins – very tense read covering some really tough material about why some people risk everything to illegally cross the Mexican border but I can’t put it down.
