About me

Emily is a research associate in the Faculty of Health and Applied Science. Since 2012, Emily has worked at UWE Bristol managing a number of varied projects in dementia care. These include a multi-site National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded feasibility study comparing older adult psychiatric inpatient wards which do and do not offer Protected Engagement Time and an Alzheimer's Society funded randomised controlled trial researching the way in which the psychosocial threat of dementia can lead to a pattern of selective forgetting – the Mnemic Neglect Effect. Currently Emily is working on developing a nostalgia based conversation intervention that formal and informal carers can incorporate into their daily interactions with people living with dementia.

Emily has a number of research interests; the development and evaluation of psychosocial interventions for people living with dementia, finding ways to improve the communication, interaction and engagement between health care professionals and people living with dementia (the focus of her recent DPhil), positive psychology and public health interventions in dementia care and research. Emily is passionate about improving inclusivity and general public involvement in every step of the research pathway, from project conception to dissemination.
