As head of the Translational Neuropsychology Group, I lead a programme of work on cognitive impairments in stroke and dementia, including investigating differential long-term outcomes and developing clinically applicable cognitive screening tools, such as the Oxford Cognitive Screen. I am Chief Investigator of three NIHR UK Clinical Research Network portfolio studies, and lead the Cognitive Screening programme at the John Radcliffe Hospital Acute Stroke Unit. My primary research interests are in cognitive neuropsychology, including the impact and nature of cognitive impairments post stroke, with a particular affinity for attentional and executive processes. I am now also investigating more severe cognitive impairments in advanced dementia and how neuropsychological profiles can link to assessments of mental capacity.
