a little bit about me

I am a Neuropsychology Fellow in the Clinical Outcomes Research Unit and the Centre of Excellence in Cellular Therapy at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.  I am also a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Melbourne.

I completed a Master of Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology) at the University of Melbourne. Under the supervision of Dr Charles Malpas, Prof Tomas Kalincik, Dr Mary Ann Anderson, and A/Prof Michael Dickinson, I am investigating neurocognitive consequences of CAR-T therapy in patients with blood cancer. Specifically, my project explores clinical presentation, predictive markers, and long-term cognitive, psychiatric, and psychosocial outcomes of immune effector cell-associated neurotoxicity syndrome (ICANS). This research is funded by an Australian Government Research Training Program scholarship.
