I am a post-doctoral research fellow working on the ‘Improving the experience of dementia and enhancing active life: The IDEAL study’ (www.idealproject.org.uk). The study aims to identify what helps people to live well with dementia or when caring for someone with dementia. Prior to starting at Brunel University, I completed a PhD degree in Epidemiology and Public Health at University College London and an MSc in Demography and Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Using data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA), my doctoral research examined perceptions of age discrimination among older adults and the relationship between self-perceived age, health and mortality.
