I am Senior Lecturer, Lead of the Neuroscience of Addiction & Mental Health Program and Deputy Director of the Healthy Brain and Mind Research Centre, at the School of Behavioural and Health Sciences, Faculty of Health at ACU.

My research focuses on mapping and mitigating alteration of brain, cognitive and mental health outcomes in addiction using multimodal MRI and multi-site studies. I am also interested in unpacking how youth neurodevelopment and sex differences affect the pathophysiology of addiction and related mental health problems.
