I am a researcher and former research fellow of the Alzheimer's Society, currently working as a lecturer, at the University of Reading. I focus on the electrical alterations in the brain of people with Alzheimer's disease.
Being funded by the Alzheimer's Society, as a Junior Fellow, was the turning point of my scientific career. Not only because it favoured my career progression into a faculty position; but also because, thanks to the constant interaction with the network volunteers, it enabled me to acquire a better perspective on how I could make my research more relevant for people with dementia, their families and carers. It thought me how I could work differently, to have more impact.
When I don't research, I cycle. This time, I will do it for 100 miles in London: help me raise funds!
