Senior Research Fellow in the School of Health and Biomedical Sciences, RMIT University

I am a Vice Chancellor Senior Research Fellow in the School of Health and Biomedical Sciences at RMIT University. I am a registered Psychologist, specialising in the treatment of sleep disorders, and an Honorary Research Fellow at the Institute for Breathing and Sleep. I completed my PhD in Neuropsychology and Sleep in 2009, after which I took up a postdoctoral position at the Sleep and Performance Research Center, Washington State University, USA from 2009-2011. My main research interest is in memory function and mood in obstructive sleep apnoea and other sleep disorders, and the role of treatment for sleep for improving mental health and cognitive outcomes.
