As Senior Research Officer within the Neuroscience of Addiction and Mental Health Program. I provide high-level support for the Program research activities and manage all aspects of the Program research projects, including the coordination of students and staff for MRI data collection. In addition, I provide technical and MRI/statistical analysis support to Program students/staff, liaison with internal and external stakeholders, and support UG/PG students through their research.

I completed my PhD at the ACU Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research while lecturing and tutoring core units in the School of Psychology. My PhD focused on understanding and improving long term functional outcomes of moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), via combining detailed clinical profiling and MRI assessment. Specifically, my PhD examined white matter integrity using advanced Diffusion Magnetic Resonance imaging tools.
