Biography

Dr D'Rozario, BSc (Hons) PhD RPSGT is a NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow and Senior Lecturer, School of Psychological Sciences, Macquarie University. She is also a Research Leader, Sleep and Circadian Research Group and Director of the Centre for Chronic Disease of Ageing at the Woolcock Institute. She established and heads a world-class high-density electroencephalography (EEG) facility for sleep neuroscience research. Dr D'Rozario is a Chief Investigator on the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence to Optimise Sleep in Brain Ageing and Neurodegeneration (CogSleep CRE, 2019-23) where she leads the EEG Biomarker Discovery Program. She was awarded an NHMRC-ARC Dementia Research Development Fellowship (2016-20) and a NHMRC EL2 Investigator Grant (2022-26) to investigate links between abnormal brain activity during sleep and cognitive impairment, and to improve cognitive outcomes through targeted sleep interventions in adults at risk for dementia. 

Dr D'Rozario trained as a sleep technologist at St Thomas' Hospital (London, UK), and later commenced her PhD in Sleep Medicine at The University of Sydney. She was a recipient of the prestigious NHMRC Dora Lush Priority PhD Scholarship to examine novel brain biomarkers of cognitive dysfunction and sleepiness in obstructive sleep apnea and received the Helen Bearpark Memorial Scholarship from the Australasian Sleep Association (ASA), the peak national body for sleep health and sleep medicine. She is an active member of the ASA Research Committee and serves on the Board of the Australia and New Zealand Sleep Science Association.
