Personal profile

Biography

Dr. Caitlin Wyrwoll is a senior lecturer in the School of Human Sciences at the University of Western Australia. Caitlin studied at Univeristy of western Australia and was awarded her PhD in 2008 on a project supervised by Professor Brendan Waddell and Dr Peter Mark. She then moved to Edinburgh, UK to work with Professor Megan Holmes and Professor Jonathan Seckl on the influence of stress hormones on fetal brain development. In 2011 she moved back to The University of Western Australia to start her own research group focusing on the early life origins of later health outcomes. They use a range of multidisciplinary and novel imaging approaches to understand how early life environment impacts on placental development and function. They also take a life course approach to track how environmental changes in pregnancy impact on maternal behaviours, offspring brain development and offspring behaviours such as anxiety and cognition.
