Personal profile

Research interests

I spend half my week working with older people with mental health disorders and dementia and my research aims to develop and evaluate better treatments for my patients. Through the conduct of independent clinical trials - from earliest proof of efficacy concept through to phase III - we can provide powerful evidence of what works and what doesn't. Within the Department we have potential PhD supervisors with interests in dementia, depression, psychosis and anxiety disorders in older people. We've experts in epidemiology, PET and MR imaging, wet lab science and old fashioned clinical studies. Please come and talk to me if you think you might have an interesting idea but need to find someone to help you to develop it into your own supervised research project.
