BSc (Hons) DPhil
- EPA Cephalosporin Junior Research Fellow, Linacre College
My research involves using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to study the ageing brain. My doctorate examined structural and functional changes in late-life depression, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease. My current work uses MRI techniques to investigate factors that may promote healthy ageing in the brain, including physical activity and sleep, within the Cognitive Health in Ageing and Whitehall Imaging Oxford research projects.
