Dr Clare Jonas

Name:

Dr Clare Jonas

Job title:

Research Communications Officer

Place of work / study:

Alzheimer’s Society

Area of Research:

Back when I did research, I worked on the psychology of multisensory perception.

Tell us a little about yourself:

I’m a former academic who made it to a lecturer position before realising that it wasn’t the right job for me. I now use the skills I learned from lecturing and public engagement to explain science to the general public, and I love it. Most of the time, I science communication work for Alzheimer’s Society. In my spare time (turns out spare time is a thing if you’re not an academic!) I find research that answers whatever psychology questions take my fancy and write about it at That Thinking Feeling.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself:

I once got people to put their hands into gunge… for science. Here’s the journal article.

Why did you choose to work in dementia?

My background is in psychology and neuroscience, so science communication work in dementia is a perfect fit for me. It’s also got personal meaning – my partner’s dad had early onset dementia and it’s really good to be doing something that will help others in his position.

Can we find you on Twitter?
