I am a final year PhD student at the University of Edinburgh. My research explores the experience of people with dementia 'going-out' through the use of walking interviews. I am interested in how people with dementia navigate, what happens when they get lost and how they relocate themselves. Furthermore, I am interested in how these experiences impact on people's sense of control, freedom and independence in their own lives. During my PhD journey I have been exposed to the variety that exists within the vast population dubbed "people with dementia" and I am interested in learning more and applying this to my future research.
