Suncica Sunny Lah, Ph.D., is a Professor of Clinical Neuropsychology at the School of Psychology, University of Sydney, Australia. She is a founding member of the Australian Paediatric Neuropsychology Research Network (APNRN) and a Head of the Epilepsy Node of the APNRN. She is registered Clinical Neuropsychologist, and a Fellow of The APS College of Clinical Neuropsychologists. She has been involved in clinical and research work with children and adults with epilepsy and traumatic brain injury for over 20 years. Her research program has focused on characterization of cognitive development and outcomes in children with epilepsy and traumatic brain injury. She has lead seminal studies that uncovered new types of deficits in long-term memory formation in children with epilepsy: accelerated long-term forgetting and impaired autobiographical memory, which have been undiagnosed and untreated. She has developed diagnostic procedures for assessment of neuropsychological deficits, such as Sydney Post-traumatic Amnesia Scale (SYPTAS). In collaboration with clinicians and families she has developed and implemented evidence based cognitive and behavioural interventions for children with neurological disorders.

Suncica Sunny identifies as culturally and linguistically diverse.
