2017 The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health Completed a 6-month research project with Prof David Ames on the Australian Imaging, Biomarker & Lifestyle Study of Ageing (AIBL) looking at mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease as part of the Doctor of Medicine program.
2009 Department of Neurosciences, Monash Medical Centre Conducted research into the functional connectivity of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, its relation to mood and its modulation by repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation. Also constructed a probabilistic atlas of the lateral prefrontal gyri.
2008 National Trauma Research Institute, Alfred Hospital Recruited mild head injury patients and controls from the Emergency Department of the Alfred Hospital. Monitored patients coming out of post-traumatic amnesia, and conducted baseline and follow up assessments of cognition and functional status. Validated an hourly version of the Westmead Post Traumatic Amnesia Scale.
2007 School of Psychology, Psychiatry and Psychological Medicine, Monash University Conducted cognitive assessments of participants with mild to severe dementia for a study examining the effects of diversional therapies on memory functioning.
2006 Department of Neurosciences, Monash Medical Centre Manually segmented a variety of lesions acquired through traumatic brain injury as visualised on a range of differently weighted Magnetic Resonance Images.
2002 Centre for Applied Drug and Alcohol Research Researched and collated data on governmental drug policies on prevention and harm minimisation of illicit substance use.
2002 Integrative Neuroscience Laboratory, Monash University Honours project explored the role of beta-amyloid in Alzheimer’s disease. Showed that treatment with β amyloid did not affect the viability of cultured astrocytes, even after β amyloid was chelated with iron.
2001 Centre for Applied Drug and Alcohol Research, Monash University Applied the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design principles to determine whether the environmental design of public places was associated with the level of drug use seen at the site through observation of direct and indirect drug litter.
2000 Integrative Neuroscience Laboratory, Monash University Upon observation that glutathione peroxidase (GPx) transgenic mice were susceptible to a larger infarct volume following ischaemic stroke, we found that iron was stored in neurons rather than in oligodendrocytes in GPx transgenic mice’s brains.
