Biography

Eneida is an occupational therapist by background (BSc Hons and MSc OT, USP Sao Paulo, Brazil) with a PhD in Applied Cognitive Psychology (Cambridge). She has over 20 years of clinical and research experience working in multiple countries. Her research programme addresses the complex interactions of brain changes, functional dependence, and family context in dementia and motor neurone disease, in a novel applied approach in neurodegeneration.

 

This unique approach in neurodegenerative conditions has led to numerous scientific publications and book chapters, international research grants, increased research capacity in postgraduate students and health professionals, conference plenaries and ongoing overseas collaborations. She relocated to Norwich in 2015 to take up the Chair of Dementia Care Research at the School of Health Sciences at UEA.
