Personal profile

Biography

I initially trained at Monash in the '80s with a PhD in experimental psycholinguistics, and I developed an interest in neuropsychology while on an MRC postdoctoral fellowship at Birkbeck College, University of London. I subsequently studied for my MSc in clinical neuropsychology at The University of Melbourne and I have since combined clinical practice in psychiatric and neuroscience settings with neuropsychological research, mainly on memory and language.

I took up a CORE position at the Macquarie Centre for Cognitive Science (MACCS) in 2007, with responsibility for developing a clinical neuropsychology service at Macquarie University Hospital (see http://www.muh.org.au/). From 2012-2016 I was Director of Clinical Neuropsychology in the Department of Psychology, responsible for the postgraduate training courses in neuropsychology. I am also a Chief Investigator with the Memory Program of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD).

Research interests

My research interests are broad in scope, but many projects have a unifying theme in terms of developing theoretically-informed tests of memory. Another theme focuses on early detection of Alzheimer's disease (mainly through my role as Co-Leader of the Clinical and Cognitive Stream in the Australian Imaging, Biomarkers & Lifestyle [AIBL] Study of Ageing). Recently I have focused on understanding the impact of hearing loss on cognition, and particularly, how hearing loss relates to risk of developing dementia. I am also engaged in studies with neurosurgical colleagues which seek to characterise cognition following surgical treatments.

Teaching

I teach mainly on the Master of Clinical Neuropsychology program, convening the Advanced Neuropsychological Assessment, Research Proposal, and Dissertation units. I contribute to individual-level teaching as a clinical supervisor for the Supervised Practical Placement units. I also convene a third year undergraduate unit: Neuropsychology in Clinical Practice.

Research student supervision

I supervise combined degree (MClinNeuro/PhD), Masters (MClinNeuro), and Honours students, with a focus on memory processing and dementia. Other current projects encompass epilepsy, cerebrovascular disease, cerebral lateralisation, mindfulness, and mental flexibility.
