BSc (Hons), MSc

DPhil Candidate

My research as a DPhil student in the Translational Neuropsychology Group focuses on clinical service improvement and intervention development for psychological changes after stroke. Informed by the Medical Research Council framework for complex intervention research, I am currently using a mixed methods approach to (i) identify gaps in services for people with cognitive impairment after stroke, (ii) co-produce with key stakeholders an intervention to (partially) address these gaps, and (iii) establish whether the intervention is feasible to be tested in a randomised controlled trial. I am committed to integrating stakeholder perspectives meaningfully at each stage of the research process.

I have also published research investigating the prognostic utility of clinically acquired neuroimaging data for post-stroke outcomes. Additionally, working alongside the Heart and Brain Group, I have investigated the associations between cardiovascular and cerebrovascular health, combining state-of-the-art vascular ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging to investigate the complex relationships between arterial stiffness, cerebrovascular flow patterns and the rate of progression of white matter degeneration.

My PhD is supervised by Prof Nele Demeyere, with co-supervision from Prof Sana Suri and Dr Sarah Pendlebury. My PhD is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Grand Union DTP.
