PhD Researcher | University of Edinburgh
Chloe Fawns-Ritchie is the cognitive testing officer at the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology at the University of Edinburgh. Chloe’s role at the centre is to assist researchers with all aspects of cognitive testing in their research. Within HAGIS, Chloe and Professor Ian Deary have developed a short cognitive assessment that will be given to HAGIS participants. This cognitive assessment will be used to understand how thinking skills, such as memory, change with increasing age, and how these skills relate to functioning in everyday life.
Chloe obtained an MSc in Human Cognitive Neuropsychology at the University of Edinburgh in 2015 and she is now carrying out a PhD at the same university investigating the association between cognitive functions and financial abilities in ageing. Some of Chloe’s PhD analysis will use the data collected in HAGIS.
