Catherine Talbot

PhD Student

I am a PhD student in the Centre for Research in Ageing and Cognitive Health (REACH), funded by the University of Exeter Medical School. I graduated from the University of Bath in 2016 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology and came runner up for the Helen Haste award for creativity and innovative writing. My PhD broadly concerns the themes of dementia, social media, and identity, which is supervised by Dr Siobhan O’Dwyer, Professor Linda Clare, and Dr Janet Heaton. Further research interests include: internet mediated research ethics, digital methods, online behaviours, and body image. I am also the South West postgraduate representative for PsyPAG.
