Publications & Presentations

Recently I had to put together an academic CV…. Here’s what I’ve done…..

Not everything is listed in my Google Scholar profile (it says my H-index is 10, so this is very nice!) Scopus also says my H-index is 10.

I’ve got an ORCid:


Disability, Dementia and Frailty in Later Life: Mid-life approaches to prevent or delay the onset of these conditions:
Review 1: Issues that prevent or limit the uptake and maintenance of healthy behaviours by people in mid-life (barriers and facilitators)
Review 2: Behavioural risk factors in mid-life associated with successful ageing and the primary prevention or delay of disability, dementia, frailty, and non-communicable chronic conditions
Review 3: Effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of mid-life interventions for increasing the uptake and maintenance of healthy lifestyle behaviours and the prevention or delay of dementia, disability, frailty and non-communicable chronic diseases related to modifiable lifestyle risk factors.
