He is also a Senior Clinical Neuropsychologist at Epworth Healthcare where he works in the Brain Injury Programme providing rehabilitation to clients with TBI and other neurological conditions. He also runs a private practice specialising in the treatment of cognitive and psychological difficulties after brain injury.

In the last 10 years, Adam's work has been dedicated to understanding the impact of brain injury on a persons life and helping people manage the changes that commonly occur after brain injury such as cognitive difficulties, emotional distress, and changes in life roles. Adam is part of the Brain Injury and Rehabilitation research team at Monash University as well as the Monash Epworth Rehabilitation Research Centre (MERRC). His research is focussed on functional and psychosocial outcomes after brain injury and rehabilitation including the role of clinical interventions for improving outcomes such as fatigue, depression and anxiety. His research collaborations are supported by a number of Monash DPsych and Psychology Honours students as well as grants from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Institute for Saftey, Compensation, and Recovery Research (ISCRR), Monash University, and Epworth Research Institute. Through his joint roles at Monash and Epworth he is focussed on translating research developments into clinical practice. For more information, see:
