Tell us a little about yourself:

I have certificates for ice-skating and like to don my white skating boots when the opportunity arises.

Why did you choose to work in dementia?

I have a broad range of research interests which I think help dementia-related studies. Sometimes it is very useful to add insights from other areas or approaches. Dementia care is a pressing problem for society and so choosing to work on these questions is something that is important to do. In policy and practice research, dementia-related studies bring in the big questions of care, humanity and ethics.
