Biography

I am a second year PhD candidate at the University of South Australia's Cognitive Ageing and Impairment Neurosciences (CAIN) Laboratory, supervised by A/Prof Hannah Keage. My research focuses on using resting state electroencephalography (EEG) and event-related potentials (ERPs) to characterise neural vulnerability to delirium and its sub-types. 

Delirium is a serious Neurocognitive disorder experienced by 1 in 4 older hospitalised older adults. Consequences of delirium are severe and include cognitive impairment, increased dementia risk and higher mortality. Delirium is conceptualised as a disorder of brain disintegration, and my research aims to characterise this brain vulnerability to delirium using EEG and ERPs.
