Research Interests

My PhD is embedded within the NIDUS programme (New Interventions for Independence in Dementia) at UCL and part of the Alzheimer’s Society Centre of Excellence for Independence at Home. My PhD aims to explore the methods and validity of Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) as a primary outcome measure for psychosocial interventions within dementia care as well as to explore the type and context of the goals set within the NIDUS-family study.

I began my part-time PhD in October 2020 and am funded by the Alzheimer’s Society’s NIDUS programme grant. I am supervised by Claudia Coper (UCL) and Andrew Sommerlad (UCL).
