Research Summary

I am a research psychologist at the Dementia Research Centre, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology and an Alzheimer’s Society Fellow.  My work has primarily focused on investigating how Alzheimer’s disease and posterior cortical atrophy may affect visual perception and spatial awareness. My research combines approaches of neuropsychological and engineering disciplines to develop and evaluate strategies supporting independent activities, including assistive technology and environmental adaptations to support reading, object finding and navigation.
