I am an NIHR doctoral fellow (2022-25), researching population-level approaches to dementia risk reduction. During my PhD I will be using mixed methods, including quantitative analysis, qualitative interviewing, policy analysis, and systematic reviewing. My background is as an applied public health academic, and I have been training as a public health specialty registrar in the East of England region since 2018. I qualified from Keele Medical School in 2015, and passed an MPhil in Public Health at the University of Cambridge in 2018-19 with distinction.
