My research interests focuses on optimising medication use in older adults and people living with dementia and/or frailty.
I am an NHMRC-ARC Dementia Research Development Fellow and Lecturer of Pharmacy Practice (at UniSA since 2019). I am also a qualified pharmacist with experience working as a clinical pharmacist in a large tertiary teaching hospital. I completed my PhD at the University of South Australia in 2014 and was awarded the medal from the School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences for my thesis work. Following this I was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Sydney with the NHMRC Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre. I also spent two months as a visiting researcher at the Brocher Foundation (Geneva, Switzerland) in 2014. The first two years of my fellowship were undertaken in Canada with the University of Sydney and the Department of Medicine at Dalhousie University, and I hold affiliate status with the College of Pharmacy, Dalhousie University. My fellowship work is also being conducted in collaboration with the Deprescribing in the Elderly Project group at the Bruyère Research Institute (Ottawa, Canada).
