Laura O’ Philbin graduated from University College Dublin in 2014 with a BA in Psychology. As part of her undergraduate degree she spent one year studying at Georgetown University in Washington, DC where she developed an interest in working with people who are living with dementia.
Laura moved to Wales in October 2014 to do a Masters by Research at the DSDC. She then received additional funding to turn her masters project into a PhD. Laura’s research is focused on digital reminiscence therapy for people living with dementia. She is funded for three years by a Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarship which supports collaborative research. Her company partner is Book of You, a community interest company, that has created a multimedia life storybook app that facilitates digital reminiscence. Her research is supervised by Prof. Bob Woods and Dr. Gill Windle.
