Personal profile


I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate working jointly between the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology and the Administrative Data Research Centre – Scotland. My background is primarily in experimental psychology, focussing on the effects of ageing on abilities such as working memory and executive functions. This includes a year spent working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Kyoto University, Japan. In my current role, however, I am involved in linking administrative data to existing psychological databases in order to create large-scale resources for answering important population-wide questions.

Research Interests

Investigating how childhood cognitive abilities and circumstances can help to predict social and health outcomes in later life, such as employment and disability.

Understanding the cognitive changes resulting from healthy adult ageing, particularly regarding intelligence and executive functions.

Investigating differences in the way in which adults approach complex tasks, and the strategies they use to complete them.
