Personal profile

Biography

I am a clinical psychologist, a Macquarie University Research Fellow and senior member of the eCentreClinic (www.ecentreclinic.org). My applied clinical research aims to improve the mental health and psychological care of people with chronic health conditions. I am particularly passionate about supporting people with neurological disorders, such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and acquired brain injury. As an emerging researcher, I have developed several streams of research in this area, spanning mental health detection, epidemiology, treatment and policy work.

I am currently developing and evaluating a transdiagnostic internet-delivered self-management program for neurological disorders, the Wellbeing Neuro Course. This innovative program combines psychological treatment components for mental health and cognitive rehabilitation and is suitable for a variety of neurological disorders.
