My research focuses on detailed clinical and cognitive phenotyping in the dementias. Careful cataloguing of characteristic disturbances in dementia syndromes allows us to be able to identify disease subtypes, inform sensitive and specific clinical diagnosis, identify robust markers of clinical progression and outcomes for intervention studies. I am particularly interested in impairments of memory and language in these conditions.
