Tell us a little about yourself:
I am originally from Glasgow, Scotland, and did my Undergraduate in Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Glasgow. I have recently moved to London to study my masters degree at UCL and I am working as an RA in Halls during my time here to support my studies. I hope to enter a career in dementia research by completing a PhD once my Masters is finished.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself:
I hate potatoes! Chips, crisps, roast potatoes, the lot
Why did you choose to work in dementia?
My family have experienced the impact of dementia first hand on multiple occasions. I always had an interest in biology and research and once I had settled on a career in neuroscience, I knew I wanted to specialise in dementia. There is still so much progress to be made and I wanted to be a part of this.
