Hi, I’m Chloe!

Hi! I’m Chloe and I am the Questionnaire Officer for Generation Scotland. My task is to design all of the questionnaires that we give to our volunteers.

My job involves selecting the topics that we want to ask our volunteers about, and finding questionnaires that can be used to assess these topics. To make sure we are using the best assessments for our study, I work closely with other health studies and researchers from around the UK and internationally.

I also use the data we collect to carry out my own research. I’m a psychologist by training, and I am especially interested in understanding the role that psychological characteristics, such as cognitive function and personality, play in both understanding health information and in predicting health outcomes.

Before I started working for Generation Scotland, I worked as a research assistant for the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology and for the Dementias Platform UK. My role was to develop cognitive assessments for various studies interested in understanding how cognitive function changes with increasing age. I mostly worked on studies of older adults. The age range of volunteers in Generation Scotland is much wider than the projects I worked on before, and I’ve very much enjoyed getting to design assessments for a wider age range of adults, as well as adolescents.

When I am not working you can probably find me out exploring Scotland’s hills, woodlands and beaches, with my camera and my dog Bonny. Or curled up on the sofa with a good book!
