Tell us a little about yourself:

I am a psychology graduate now studying a masters in dementia neuroscience. I’m particularly interested in neuropsychology, and hope to enter a career in clinical psychology in the future. Beyond academia I am also particularly interested in true crime and spend my free time researching unsolved and obscure true crime cases.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself:

I am a huge wrestling fan too and have seriously considered become a professional wrestler in the past.

Why did you choose to work in dementia?

During my undergraduate degree, memory was one of my favourite fields of psychology to learn about. Entering the field of dementia therefore gave me the opportunity to learn more about memory and how neurodegenerative processes can affect various cognitive domains.
