Miss Jennifer Waymont

Position: PhD Student


Jenny Waymont is a PhD candidate in Medical Imaging at the University of Aberdeen. Her PhD thesis is on the automated detection and analysis of white matter hyperintensities in healthy ageing and in neurodegenerative disorders. Jenny’s background is in psychology, having gained a BSc (hons) in Psychology with Clinical and Health Psychology, an MSc in Psychological Research, and an MSc in Neuroimaging, all within the School of Psychology at Bangor University in North Wales. During this time, she developed research experience across a range of topics, including personality and substance misuse, evidence-based medicine and clinicians’ prescribing behaviours, language acquisition and bilingual aphasia, and social perception.

Jenny’s research interests lie within the intersection of the brain and the mind, with a particular interest in psychosocial influences on brain ageing processes. Currently, Jenny is analysing brain MRI data from large healthy ageing cohort studies (the ‘Aberdeen Children of the 1950s’ and the ‘Stratifying Resilience Against Depression Longitudinally’ studies), and from a Phase III clinical trial for Alzheimer’s disease, to determine the risk factors and outcomes of increased white matter hyperintensity burden in older adults.
