Thesis title: Integrative Relations in Healthy Ageing: How can the integrative advantage be explained?

Supervisors: Dr Marie Poirier and Professor James Hampton

Higher educational background

BSc (Hons) in Psychology at City University London, Research Assistant at City, University of London

Overview and research interests

My focus concerns the memory of older adults, in particular, their ability to benefit from the integration of individual concepts. My research investigates this integrative advantage and tries to address the ways in which integration can be most successful and beneficial to the memory of older adults. In addition, I'm also looking at how novel relationships between items can be maintained and strengthened in memory.

Research interests
