I completed a combined Masters (Clinical Neuropsychology) and PhD at the University of Melbourne in 2012. I have worked with the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health on Alzheimer's disease research projects since 2010. Over the 7 years I have spent at the Florey I have seen hundreds of cases of prodromal Alzheimer's disease and Alzheimer's disease dementia, more than many clinicians see in a lifetime, and so know only too well the burden of dementia on individuals and their families and friends. I am passionate about contributing to research into early detection; to discover biomarkers and cognitive correlates of AD early enough to provide an avenue for intervention with disease modifying therapies.
