In 2015, she was awarded a Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship from the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Alertness, Safety and Productivity to investigate physiological markers of shift work maladaptation. During this time, she worked with various industry partners to develop of a digital behavioural intervention to manage shift work. She has a particular interest in understanding physiological biomarkers of disease, including circadian rhythm disorders and shift work maladaptation. After commenting Centre for Neuroscience of Speech in October 2018, her current work includes investigating acoustic characteristics which align with of disease onset and progression is currently working with A/Prof Adam Vogel to develop a program of work investigating the utility of speech acoustics in assessing alertness state.
