I joined the University of Wolverhampton as a Research Associate in 2011. With a background in Psychology I became particularly interested in cognitive aging and completed a funded PhD at Loughborough University investigating the association between physical activity and cognitive impairment in mid- to later-life. At the University of Wolverhampton I began working on a project funded by the BUPA Foundation investigating lifestyle risk factors for dementia. I have since worked on a range of research and consultancy projects across public health, including independent evaluations of health initiatives in the community. I continue to have a particular interest in healthy aging and currently collaborate with researchers across the University to develop research projects around cognitive impairment, physical health and caregiver health and wellbeing. With a particular expertise in quantitative research I provide consultancy to colleagues and external partners to assist with statistical analysis and interpretation. I teach quantitative methodology and statistics on several Masters and Doctorate modules and offer classes as part of a series of research workshops offered to external organisations. I also supervise Doctorate and Masters students on a range of projects in public health. I am a member of the Centre for Applied Research and Education (CARE) in Dementia at the University of Wolverhampton and facilitate the University’s membership of the Dementia Action Alliance.
