Overview

I am a founding memeber of the Centre for Research in Ageing and Cognitive Health (REACH). My long-term ambition is to improve care for people affected by cognitive impairment through high-quality applied health research.

My academic backgound is in clinical psychology. I gained MA in Psychology from the University of Warsaw (2005), MSc in Clinical Neuropsychology (2008), and PhD in Clinical Psychology in 2013. My MSc research project concerned awareness in people with dementia; in my PhD study I examined executive-type deficits in people with Parkinson’s disease. I have also completed post-graduate training in evidence-based psychological treatments, teaching, and project management. I have more than five years’ experience in the operational management of a clinical trial of a psychosocial intervention for people with dementia (GREAT trial) and am a co-investigator on an ongoing implementation project that aims to translate the GREAT trial findings into clinical practice (GREAT iP).

I value my experience of contributing to cognitive rehabilitation for people with acquired brain injury, which has given me important insights into the realities of living with cognitive impairment. In the GREAT trial I have applied this understanding to the complex personal circumstances and varied needs of people with dementia, and I look forward to extending this in my future work.

I am representing early career researchers in the Athena SWAN Working Group (University of Exeter Medical School).

Broad research specialisms:

Executive function, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, behaviour regulation, psychosocial interventions
