Tell us a little about yourself:
I have been working on Dementia research in Oxford for 2 years and really enjoy meeting patients and their families. I started a degree in Computer Science but swapped to Psychology and found the perfect mix of the two for my Master’s degree: Neuroscience. I’m able to spend lots of time with people and use my computer/coding skills for analysis. Outside of work, I have a love/hate relationship with running and enjoy reading murder mystery books.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself:
My favourite film is Inside Out.
Why did you choose to work in dementia?
For me, my interest in dementia stemmed from personal reasons and I am lucky to be involved in great research which will hopefully provide treatments for the future.
