Research Themes
Research Summary

My research focus is clinical cognitive neuroscience and dementia. I am interested in understanding how cognitive function can be preserved and recovered following the onset of neurodegeneration. The aim is not only to understand the factors that support successful adaptation, but also develop novel, non-invasive interventions, such as cognitive training, that will enhance such mechanisms and improve cognitive function in dementia. Because they are low-risk, such interventions can be used in synergy with other more invasive therapies to promote more effective treatment. I currently work on Huntington's disease, the most common genetic dementia, to identify the environmental factors that contribute to successful adaptation in the brain and develop novel interventions that could slow cognitive impairment.

Teaching Summary

I lecture on neuroimaging methods for the MRes in Translational Neurology and MSc in Advanced Imaging. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me.

I supervise MSc and PhD students across UCL on projects relating to neuroimaging, neurodegeneration and neuroplasticity. Please get in touch to discuss doing an MSc/BSc project with me.
