Research officer, University of Sydney

Stephanie Wong is a postdoctoral researcher at Frontier, a clinical research group at the Brain and Mind Centre, University of Sydney, investigating younger-onset dementias. She has a background in Clinical Neuropsychology and recently completed her PhD, which investigated episodic memory in patients with frontotemporal dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Her research explores why we remember certain types of information better than others, and how this relates to damage in different areas of the brain.
