Personal profile

Biography

I am a cognitive neuroscientist and a clinical neuropsychologist. I completed the combined Master of Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology) and PhD at the University of Melbourne in 2009. From there I worked as a research and clinical fellow at Tel Aviv University and Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center (2009 - 2013), funded by the European Commission 7th Framework Programme Marie Curie International Reintegration Grant. My current research, supported by the NHMRC-ARC Dementia Research Development Fellowship, investigates spatial learning and memory in Huntington's disease. I use virtual environments and imaging techniques such as MRI to study associated patterns of brain function and structure.
