Personal profile


Emily holds the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Neuropsychology within the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health at Monash University. Her research investigates vascular, lifestyle and genetic contributors to cognitive decline and dementia. A large portion of her work involves the facilitation and analysis of data within a large, NHMRC-funded randomised controlled trial targeting four modifiable risk factor clusters in order to prevent cognitive decline and dementia in middle-aged adults.

Emily has recently (2020) completed her PhD in clinical neuroscience and rehabilitation at the University of South Australia. Her PhD research aimed to disentangle the relationship between cognitive reserve and recovery following stroke. Her research also focused on understanding the influence of cognitive reserve and functional connectivity on motor recovery throughout the first 3-months post-stroke.

Emily has strong research interests in the areas of cognitive, vascular disorders, non-modifiable (e.g. genetic) and modifiable (i.e. vascular, lifestyle) moderators of neurodegenerative disease progression and cognitive impairment/decline, neuropsychological assessment, psychometrics and statistical modelling.

In addition to her scientific work, Emily is a strong advocate for quality science, science communication and increasing community engagement with scientific concepts and research. She is frequently involved in community events aimed at encouraging Australian youth, particularly young women and girls, to become involved and interested in neuroscience and other science-based careers.
