Supervision Statement

  • My research interests include neurodegenerative conditions, particularly multiple sclerosis, and the interaction between cognition, depression and quality of life in these populations, as well as cognitive enhancement and psychoneuroimmunology (stress progression relationship). 

    I am interested in assessment of lifestyle factors and augmentative interventions aimed at lessening disease progression and enhancing wellbeing. 

    I also have an interest in diagnostic terminology related to disability and the impact of its use for people with disabilities, their families, carers and the broader community.
