Cambridge Public Health


Lindsay Wallace holds a BSc (Psychology) and PhD (Interdisciplinary studies) from Dalhousie University, and an MSc (Neuroscience) from McGill University. Lindsay is currently undertaking a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Public Health at the University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Prof. Carol Brayne, and is funded by the Canadian Tri-council Banting Fellowship. Her work uses data from large epidemiologic clinico-pathologic studies to answer questions about how ageing and frailty are related to the pathology and clinical expression of dementia. She blends insights from epidemiology, public health, and neuroscience to better understand how dementia arises and how public health approaches may be able to address prevention. Lindsay is passionate about teaching and science communication; she has a Teaching Certificate, has served as a Dalhousie Public Scholar, and delivered presentations and initiatives to a wide range of public audiences including children, patients and families touched by frailty and dementia, and elder learner programs.
