Personal profile

Biography

Dr Lisa Grech is a registered psychologist and healthcare services researcher, who graduated from her PhD and Master of Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology) in December 2015. Following two years as a practicing psychologist and teaching fellow, Dr Grech accepted a three-year role as a postdoctoral research fellow. Her research program aims to improve health outcomes in people with multiple sclerosis by focusing on challenges from the dual perspective of the healthcare practitioner and the person with MS. Current projects aim to 1) improve detection and treatment of depression; 2) understand the relationship between treatment burden and medication adherence to disease modifying treatments; 3) improve smoking cessation supports for people with MS. She also has an interest in the neuroprotective value of antidepressant medication.

As a registered psychologist, Dr Grech is committed to a clinician-researcher model. She is a volunteer support worker for people with MS through Multiple Sclerosis Limited and values the understanding this provides about the experiences of people with multiple sclerosis away from the research setting.
