BSc Cognitive Neuroscience with Psychology
My research interests involve measuring the cognitive, biological and gait abnormalities associated with neurodegenerative diseases. My main interests lie in Parkinson's disease, Dementia and Huntington's disease.
I currently work for the NeuroMetrology lab, investigating the cognitive, oculomotor and gait impairments in participants with varying stages of Parkinson's disease and Progressive Supranuclear Palsy.
