Biography

I am the current Main Roads Research Fellow located within the Western Australian Centre for Road Safety Research at UWA within the School of Psychological Science.

I have a PhD in psychopharmacology and electrophysiology from the School of Pharmacology at UWA, with experience in running human psychopharmacology trials (and some animal). At that time, I was particularly interested in dopaminergic agents and how they relate to psychosis and schizophrenia. Never one to maintain attention on any one topic for too long, publications and topics of interest have ranged from assessing computational aspects of psychiatric disorders (mostly schizophrenia) to cognitive deficits in Alzheimer’s, cognitive and emotional processing differences in autism, animal models of developmental disorders, re-hospitalisation prediction, cannabinoid psychopharmacology, intervention effectiveness, multi-sensory integration, and [maybe excessively complicated] statistical approaches to complex data.

The broad multi-disciplinary experience has benefited my work as the Main Roads Research Fellow. Projects for Main Roads have included assessments of the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a significant number of interventions that have been implemented to improve the safety of WA roads. The fellowship broadly covers a spectrum of WA specific road safety issues, researched on an as needed basis. Related work includes driving simulator studies, with future projects planning to evaluate the impact of various psychoactive substances and/or states on driving performance and cognition.
