Biography

I graduated from the University of Manchester in 2015 with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and followed this with an MPhil in Primary Care Mental Health, also from Manchester. In January, 2017 I was awarded a doctoral training program studentship by the Medical Research Council for a PhD in Mental Health, which commenced September, 2017 with the Centre for Primary Care at the University of Manchester. 

My research across my MPhil and within my PhD work focuses on the assessment of dementia and cognitive impairment within ethnic minority groups and improving their access and diagnosis of dementia in memory services. This comprises DOME Project: Dementia in Ethnic Minorities.  

Alongside my studies I am working as a graduate teaching assistant with the School of Psychological Sciences at the university. I am also on the student committee for the university's MRC DTP cohort, a science communication sub-editor for The Research Hive, and an assistant editor for the BPS' Minorities' Group.

I am also a Research Assistant at the Salford Royal Department of Clinical Neuropsychology, developing and leading on the IMAN Project: Improving Minorities Access to Neuropsychological services.
