I have worked at Newcastle University for the past 15 years, mainly in the area of ageing and health. My main areas of expertise are neuropsychology – conducting cognitive assessments with various patient groups, general data collection – administering a range of different study questionnaires and assessments on a variety of studies and also qualitative research methods, conducting and analysing qualitative interviews.
