Pippa Watson

BSc, MSc

DPhil Student


I am a DPhil student in the Department of Psychiatry at Dementias Patform UK (DPUK) under the supervision of Prof Sarah Bauermeister, Dr Ivan Koychev, and Prof John Gallacher. My research focuses on investigating the role of lifestyle factors in early, mid, and later life in SuperAgers (individuals who show superior cognitive abilities in later life). My DPhil research is jointly funded by the Clarendon Fund, and the Department of Psychiatry studentship. 

Prior to starting my DPhil, I worked as a research assistant within the Department of Psychiatry with DPUK focused on data curation. I also hold an MSc in Psychological Research from the University of Oxford and a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from UCL.
