Personal profile

Biography

I received my Master’s of Science degree in Psychological Science from Montana State University where my work investigated the behavioural effects of neurodegenerative disease in animal models. Following a couple years working in industry, I moved to Australia where I completed my PhD at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders. As part of the Memory strand at the CCD I investigated how individual differences in cognitive abilities modulate collaborative group memory. My current research in the Department of Cognitive Science at Macquarie University investigates the brain signatures of successful learning. Specifically, I investigate the EEG correlates of university student academic achievement. As part of a Co-funded Fellowship Scheme, I also work closely with Emotiv Pty Ltd, makers of portable EEG technology. This research involves the validation of their software and hardware.
