Louisa completed her degree in psychology at Durham University in 2006 before going on to study for her MSc in Foundations of Clinical Neuropsychology at Bangor University in 2007.  Since graduating, she gained clinical experience working with adults with neurological conditions, before managing the Greater Manchester Assessment of Stroke Rehabilitation (G-MASTER) project, which developed and implemented a toolkit of standardised measurement tools in stroke rehabilitation units and assessed the impact on multidisciplinary team communication and patient outcomes.

Louisa joined the Academic Unit for Ageing and Stroke Research as a Research Fellow on the ReAcT project in September 2014.  This research aims to develop an in-depth understanding of therapy provision in stroke units, using ethnographic methods to explore how the national recommendation of forty five minutes of each relevant therapy per day is implemented by therapists and experienced by patients and their carers.
