I am a second-year DPhil student with the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences (NDCN) studying cognitive decline in Parkinson's disease by using new, improved psychometric tests.

I have been interested in researching the cognitive effects of neurodegenerative disease ever since my undergraduate degree in psychology and cognitive neuroscience. From this I specialised in detecting cognitive decline in dementia and Parkinson's disease through my Masters and thereafter in employment. My DPhil is therefore very suited to my research interests!

I love being a DPhil student with NDCN as they have been very flexible in supporting me to carry out my DPhil part-time. Even though I am part-time, I have been heavily involved with committees within the Department and have enjoyed the community atmosphere. Overall, NDCN is a friendly, very approachable and supportive department for students and I highly recommend doing a DPhil here.
