Research Fellow, University of Auckland

“My research involves working with a family who carry a genetic mutation that causes dementia. Family members who carry the mutation develop frontotemporal dementia in their 50s, experiencing symptoms that eventually lead to profound changes in personality and loss of independence. 

I’m inspired by this family’s commitment to being involved in research as participants, and their conviction that research holds the key to preventing dementia in future generations of their family. I’m inspired by their support for each other, and their willingness to help other families living with frontotemporal dementia.”


Critical research efforts in prevention of dementia.

There are thousands of people across Aotearoa, who spend their working life in the field of Dementia. They need all the support they can get.

What keeps them going?

"The real inspiration for me is the people I meet as part of my work and the amazing stories they share. As a psychiatrist people tell you their life story at the first meeting and this is a privilege that people put that level of trust in me. These stories often catch you by surprise and include adventures that you can never dream of. 

I aim to allow the adventures and stories to continue to be positive and full of love and joy. I am also inspired by the care partners and their strength and resilience and aim to support them and their loved ones through the dementia journey."
