Personal profile


Melanie is an early career researcher with an interest in the impact of severe mental illness upon daily role functioning, and the epidemiology of severe mental illness. Melanie began her career working casually for the School of Psychology at Curtin University of Technology as a research assistant for the Positive Parenting program. After completing her honours year, Melanie began working as a Research Assistant for the Western Australian Family Study of Schizophrenia (WAFSS) and now works in the School of Pharmacology on a study of Obesity and Chronic Pain.
