a little bit about me
I am a research fellow in the Clinical Outcomes Research Unit (CORe) at the Department of Medicine, Royal Melbourne Hospital. My research at CORe covers the neurocognitive disorders and epilepsy, and involves the application of advanced statistical modelling to answer clinically relevant questions. I am particularly interested in the application of Bayesian methods to predict clinical outcomes.
I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in neuroimaging at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI), where I was supported by an NHMRC Peter Doherty Australian Biomedical Fellowship. Clinically, I am a board-endorsed neuropsychologist (MAPS FCCN), currently working in the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at The Alfred Hospital and in private practice. I am also a chartered psychologist in the UK (CPsychol) and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBPsP).
