Dr Maggie Ellis

Psychology

My research interests lie in the psychology of dementia where cognitive and social perspectives meet, with a focus on the communication difficulties experienced by people with dementia and those who care for them. I am particularly interested in the interplay between the cognitive and social impact of dementia on personhood and the self of individuals with dementia. I am committed to carrying out high quality research, applying a range of mixed methods to real world problems.  My external work involves consultancy and training dementia care staff.
