Before joining BUDI in January 2016, Yolanda finished her BSc (Hons) in Psychology and MSc in Geropsychology both at the University of Barcelona, and gained Clinical experience working as a Psychologist in an elderly care setting. More recently she worked as a Research Project Support Officer at Dementia Services Development Centre (Bangor University) in a study called “Dementia and Imagination” and as a Psychologist at the Red Cross leading memory workshops and promoting active ageing among older people living in the community.
Yolanda is currently conducting a research study examining participants' acceptability and adherence to a Tai Chi exercise intervention designed to prevent falls amongst people living with dementia in the community.
Her PhD studentship is funded by a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Career Development Fellowship awarded to Dr Samuel Nyman.
