Short CV

PhD in Psychiatry, 2017, University of New South Wales, Australia
BSc in Psychology (Hons), 2011, University of Wollongong, Australia

Research interests

  • Brain connectivity patterns in health and developmental changes with adolescense and normal ageing
  • Variability of neural signalling in interoceptive and reward circuits that underpin affective and neurodegenerative disorders 
  • Employing advanced fibre-tracking methods from dMRI data combined in conjunction with brain network analyses
