I am a lead investigator of the Healthy Brain Project (healthybrainproject.org.au) with Dr Rachel Buckley, and a research fellow at The Florey Institue of Neuroscience and Mental Health. I am primarily interested in understanding how genetic and lifestyle factors, independently or interactively, accelerate or protect against brain diseases, particularly dementia. My work is supported by the NHMRC National Institute for Dementia Research (Australia), and the Alzheimer's Association (USA).
