Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in memory and related functions in human health and disease. My research investigates a variety of questions including: How does memory change as we grow older and in Alzheimer's Disease? How are new memories processed in the brain? How do different post-learning conditions (e.g. quiet rest, being busy) affect the early processing and transformation of new memories? How do we find our way in new and familiar environments? Are there differences in memory functions between hearing and deaf individuals? To do this, I use a range of behavioural and electrophysiological methods, including electroencephalogram (EEG) brain activity recording, sensitive memory measures, neuropsychological tests, and virtual reality. The ultimate goals of my work are to provide new insights into memory in human health and disease in order to develop new diagnostic tools / measures of disease progression (e.g. for Alzheimer’s Disease) and safe, low-cost interventions to support those with and without memory problems to live as healthy and independently as possible, for as long as possible.
