MA (Hons), MSc
DPhil Candidate in Psychiatry
I am a DPhil student supervised by Professor Klaus Ebmeier and Dr Claire Sexton. My research focuses on the relationship between lifestyle and the ageing brain.
By combining detailed epidemiological data with neuropsychological and neuroimaging outcomes, I am investigating whether activity levels over the lifespan predict cognitive performance and structural and functional connectivity changes of the brain, in old age.
Prior to starting a DPhil at Oxford, I completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of St Andrews (2014), and a MSc degree in Health Psychology at University College London (2015). My current research is supported by the Department of Psychiatry, Clarendon and St John's College.
