I'm a senior research fellow at the Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre (MNC), Department of Psychiatry, University of Melbourne, where I lead the Mood-Psychosis Spectrum Research Group.
I'm currently funded by the NHMRC, and I study the brain and behaviour in two of the most complex psychiatric disorders; schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. My background is in the area of clinical neuropsychology research but my fellowship program incorporates neuroimaging to better understand the relationship between behaviourally assessed cognitive (thinking) skills and underlying brain anatomy and brain function.
