Aleksandra Podlewska

Research Coordinator

Aleksandra (Ola) is a clinical research coordinator at King’s College London and the National Parkinson Foundation Centre of Excellence, King’s College, London.

My interests are in the digital outcomes in neurological conditions and the olfactory dysfunction in Parkinson’s. I have previously worked on a trial investigating the effects of vestibular stimulation on the symptoms of Parkinson’s and I currently work on several projects investigating the use of technology to help with diagnoses and care in PD.

I trained as a scientist with a degree in psychology (BSc Hons), cognitive psychology and neuropsychology (MSc) at the University of Kent (UK) before joining the EUROPAR team in 2017.
