BiographyI hold an Honours in Psychology from the University of Melbourne, and a PhD in Psychology from Monash University. My PhD thesis investigated dual-tasking in healthy ageing and Huntington's disease.
While doing my PhD, I worked as a teaching associate at Monash. Upon completion of my studies, I stayed at Monash and was involved in three multinational clinical studies in Huntington’s disease.
In 2014, I got my first job as a postdoctoral researcher at Heriot-Watt University. My project, Tablet for Healthy Ageing, investigated the potential of tablet computers to improve the health and wellbeing in older adults.
Following the Tablet for Healthy Ageing project, I was a named researcher on a Velux Stiftung funded project, The Intervention Factory (also at Heriot-Watt). The Intervention Factory, considered community-based activities (e.g., computers, physical activity, handicraft, languages) as potential interventions for cognitive ageing.
I joined the Psychology team at the University of Bradford as a lecturer in 2018.
In addition to my psychology qualifications, I hold qualifications in languages, sports journalism, personal training and dancing.
A list of my publications can be found through Bradford Scholars.
