Personal profile


I am a postdoctoral researcher and a member of the Macquarie University Lifespan Health and Wellbeing Research Centre. My research interests are in the areas of dementia prevention, older adult mental health and wellbeing, and affect and social cognition. My doctoral research focused on how moods influence social cognition and communication, such as providing sufficient, reliable, relevant, and clear information, detecting ambiguity, informational framing and creating positive impressions, and strategic questioning. In my postdoctoral research, I manage the Ageing Well Tool designed to screen for risk factors for dementia and poor wellbeing (e.g., depression, social isolation) in older adults in primary care settings and provide evidence-based recommendations for risk reduction. I also work on related projects such as looking at social participation, mental health, and wellbeing in older adults with healthy cognition and older adults with mild cognitive impairment/early dementia and their older adult carers/supporters, the features of social relationships that influence cognition, and the mechanisms underlying positive mood in older adults.
