Why did you choose to work in dementia?
I have always been fascinated by the brain in general and I have a personal interest in Dementia. Doing research in this field is an opportunity to combine those interests and I hope one day that I could help to improve the way in which we detect and diagnose dementia so that we can start to help people living with dementia at the earliest stage possible.
