Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests have evolved and will continue to do so over the years. My PhD at the University of Sussex was about everyday memory in people with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and how it changes over time. The aim was to inform the development of strategies that would support memory in people with AD. My postdoc continued to research older adults with dementia. One study involved an international, collaborative study of dementia attitudes, beliefs and experiences of people in Pakistan. However, the majority of my research focused on the lifestyle risk factors of AD, including loneliness and poor sleep. The latter sparked my fascination of the interplay between sleep and every aspect of waking life (e.g. cognitive ability, mood, health and behaviour), leading to a desire to continue this work in the future.
