Thesis Title: Autobiographical memory in healthy ageing: an investigation of temporal order in SenseCam retrieval cues

Supervisors: Professor Martin Conway and Dr Marie Poirier

Overview and research interests

Ali's PhD is investigating autobiographical memory in healthy ageing using a new technology called Vicon Revue (previously SenseCam).

Ali is particularly interested in the effect of manipulating the temporal order of cue sequences for retrieval of episodic memories and rich autobiographical memories of everyday events.

Research areas:

  • Memory & cognition in healthy ageing
  • Autobiographical memory
  • Episodic memory
  • Retrieval from memory
  • SenseCam

Ali also has an MSc Memory and its Disorders (University of Leeds), and a BSc (Hons) Psychology (University of Leeds).
