I took up a CORE position at the Macquarie Centre for Cognitive Science (MACCS) in 2007,with responsibility for developing a clinical neuropsychology service at the new Macquarie University Hospital. In 2011 I became Director of Clinical Neuropsychology in the Department of Psychology, responsible for the postgraduate training courses in neuropsychology. I am a Chief Investigator with the Memory Program of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD), and Co-Leader of the Clinical and Cognitive Stream in the Australian Imaging, Biomarkers & Lifestyle (AIBL) Study of Ageing.

Research interests

Development of theoretically-informed tests of memory; early detection of Alzheimer's disease; long-term forgetting in epilepsy; collaborative recall in ageing; cognition in Parkinson's disease.
