Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Chartered Psychologist and I joined Northumbria University in March 2018 following post-doctoral work at Newcastle University and a short time as a lecturer at Teesside University.

I am a sleep researcher and I am Associate Director of Northumbria Sleep Research. I use a range of techniques to measure sleep, including overnight laboratory studies. I have research interests in applied and clinical sleep research projects. I have a particular interest in the aetiology and treatment of sleep disturbances in neurodegenerative dementia, and in healthy ageing more generally. I also have interests in the use of non-invasive brain stimulation (transcranial direct current stimulation and transcranial magnetic stimulation) and their applications in sleep and dementia research. I have managed clinical trials in the UK and India which have used tDCS as a treatment for attentional problems and visual hallucinations in Lewy body dementia. Finally, I have a general interest in Lewy body dementia research, with a focus on neuropsychological symptoms and clinical trial outcome measures.
