I also have a profile at the ARC Centre for Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders.

Profile

After a previous career as a Chartered Accountant, I decided to pursue a career in an area I was truly passionate about as a research scientist. I completed my undergraduate degree in Science - Psychology (Hons) at Macquarie University in 2013 under the supervision of A/Prof Sachiko Kinoshita.

I commenced my PhD in late 2013 under the supervision of Dr Celia Harris (Macquarie University) and Prof Amanda Barnier (Macquarie University). My current research aims to investigate the effect of collaboration on prospective memory performance, and whether that effect is moderated by the relationship between the collaborators and/or their age.
