Overview

  • Jayden joined the University of Exeter in 2014 as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Psychology. He then joined the College of Medicine and Health as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Research in Ageing and Cognitive Health (REACH) in 2020, and in 2021 joined the Exeter Clinical Trials Unit as a Trial Coordinator. Before moving to Exeter, Jayden was a postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, University of Cambridge.

    Jayden’s research in Experimental Psychology has resulted in over 40 publications, which have provided him with a strong understanding of experimental design, research methodology and statistical techniques. 

    Jayden’s role at the ExeCTU encompasses both Trial and Data Management.    

Qualifications

  • PhD: Cognitive Psychology, Queen Mary University of London, UK  
  • MSc: Ecology and Biodiversity, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
  • BSc: Biology & Psychology Double Major, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

   UK Home Office Personal Licence, Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986

  • Modules 1-3 Wild mammals and birds
  • Modules 1-4 Sheep 

Research

Research interests

Much of Jayden’s research has focused on using animal models to illuminate the processes that underlie individual differences in cognition, particularly those related to human neurodegenerative and pathological disorders.  

Research projects

  • HemiSPAIRE (IRAS: 258327): The effects of a modified muscle sparing posterior technique (SPAIRE) in hip hemiarthroplasty for displaced intracapsular fractures on post-operative function compared to a standard lateral approach; a randomised controlled trial.
  • SHAPE (IRAS: 258388): Online Self-management and HeAlth Promotion in early-stage dementia with E-learning for carers. A multicentre, randomised, controlled trial.
