I am a research assistant currently working on the Impact of Semaglutide in Amyloid Positivity (ISAP) study, a clinical trial led by Dr Ivan Koychev and the University of Oxford Department of Psychiatry investigating whether a diabetes drug can prevent or delay the progression of Alzheimer's Disease. My role involves coordinating the participant recruitment and study visits for all of the five testing sites for the study, as well as conducting cognitive assessments and facilitating other research tests on participants in the ISAP study. Additionally, I aid in other DPUK research projects, such as the FAST Brain Health study. I also work at the Oxford Health Brain Health Clinic as an honorary clinical research assistant, where patients who are experiencing memory problems are referred by their GP for further assessments prior to their memory clinic appointment.
I am an aspiring clinical neuropsychologist planning to do my doctorate in clinical psychology, and have a First Class BSc in Psychology with Cognitive Neuroscience. I have previous research assistant experience with the the University of Oxford Department of Experimental Psychology and the University of Essex, predominantly in the domain of language processing. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family (including my cat), and watching and playing football, as well as being an avid reader, my favourite author is Fyodor Dostoevsky.
