Ben Steward

Research Assistant

My role at Oxford is focused mainly on The HOME Study within the PMR group. Before joining the team I studied Psychology with Clinical Psychology at the University of Kent and completed my Master’s degree in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Sussex in 2017. I also spent two years working in a patient-facing role within Radiology at the East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust between my degrees.


My research interests primarily lie between clinical and cognitive psychology, particularly in how improvements to psychological wellbeing lead to a change in day-to-day functioning and cognition, particularly amongst older individuals. This interest further extends to include cognitive and neurological differences in visual and auditory perception amongst psychiatric populations, and the psychology of decision making by clinical populations.
