• Co-chief investigator for Alzheimer’s society funded Facilitating Early Diagnosis in Dementia (FED-D) study, a cluster RCT to increase timely diagnosis of dementia promoting memory service access.
• Co-chief investigator of an Alzheimer’s Society funded qualitative study developing evidence based materials for GPs to use to increase early diagnosis of dementia.
• Programme coordinator for Support at Home: Interventions to Enhance Life in Dementia (SHIELD), a 5 year, NIHR funded research programme of psychosocial research in cognitive stimulation, reminiscence work, carer and home treatment support.
• Principle investigator in NELFT for Strategies for Relatives (START) study, a pragmatic RCT to determine the clinical and cost-effectiveness of a manual-based coping strategy programme for promoting the mental health of carers of people with dementia.
• Clinical researcher on a single–blind RCT investigating the needs of older people with dementia in care homes using the Camberwell Assessment of Need in the Elderly (CANE).
• Clinical researcher on a longitudinal epidemiological study (LASER-AD) that examined the mental and physical health, cognition, activities of daily living, quality-of-life, medication, resource use and caregiver burden in a cohort of people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers over time.
• Participation in the main reliability and validity study for the Camberwell Assessment of Need in the Elderly. A scale developed to measure the needs of older people with mental illness.
