Dave is a visiting research fellow at the University of Southampton. Previously Dave was a Chartered Engineer in contract R&D, working with high-tech communications systems and medical electronics for over 30 years. Embarking on a career change, he completed his PhD ‘Modelling the Future of Dementia Care in Wessex’ in 2018.
Working with colleagues, Dave is currently exploring the relationships between the progression of cognitive and functional decline in dementia, neuroimaging regions of interest (ROIs), and several other biomarkers relating neuro-inflammatory pathways and Alzheimer’s Disease pathology.
He is skilled in data analytics, simulation and modelling, and systems engineering.
Dementia is an increasing problem in today’s ageing society, and meeting future demand for care is a major concern for policy-makers and planners. This paper presents a novel hybrid simulation...
Objectives: The aim of the study was to model dementia prevalence and outcomes within an ageing population using a novel hybrid simulation model that simultaneously takes population-level and patient-level perspectives to...
Background: Prognosis for Alzheimer’s disease is difficult, with rates of disease progression varying widely. Despite the extensive use of clinical dementia severity assessment scales to determine dementia diagnosis and to monitor...
