PhD candidate

I received my MSc from the University of Sheffield, UK, in 2019. My research project investigated the use of linguistic biomarkers to identify and monitor cognitive change in persons with Mild Cognitive Impairment.

My current research focus is disordered motivation in neurological disease. I aim to investigate the neurobiological and behavioural mechanisms of apathy, with a focus on breakdown in decisionmaking processes.

My primary supervisor is Dr Campbell Le Heron and co-supervisor, Dr Michael McAskill.

I am from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, where I worked as a speech therapist in the field of adult neurological rehabilitation.
