Dr Louise Karwowski

Head of Science - Cognassist

Louise’s passion for many years has been to help people break down barriers to learning. She worked with disabled HE students to help them to achieve their degrees with DSA funding and support while writing her PhD. She saw first-hand over many years that with the correct understanding and communication, barriers can be dissolved and disabled learners can have an equal chance of success as their peers. Now, Louise is Head of Science at Cognassist, developing their unique assessment and support platform that has assessed over 45,000 learners. She is also Director of a mental health community interest company based in her home county of West Yorkshire.
