About me

About me

I am a Dementia Studies PhD Student that has 10 years of relevant experience working in the Social Care sector as Senior Supervisor and Senior Carer. I have relevant practice experience in providing person-centred care, shift management, care planning, risk assessing, and liaising with key stakeholders that has shaped my research.

My key interest is LGBT+ Dementia Care and my PhD will explore 'what it means to be a queer man with dementia' and using an Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis approach to answer the question.

Due to my interest, I have also become a member of the LGBTQ+ dementia advisory group that aims to give this cohort of people a voice and help make a positive change in health and social care.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, hiking, camping, and volunteering at Film and Comic Cons. I also currently sit on IHSCM Equality & Inclusion and Fraility and Ageing special interest group.
