Originally from Europe, I started working with dairy cows at age of 11. With a lifelong interest in animals and animal health, after completing my undergraduate education I worked for 2.5 years as a veterinary practitioner in Europe with production animals and occasionally companion animals, before migrating to New Zealand.

My main research interest is in how the mind works, in the broadest sense. How do people learn new concepts? How do children learn language? How do we make decisions in an uncertain world? These are the kinds of questions I hope to shed light on with my work. I approach these questions using a mix of experimental methods and computational modelling techniques.
I am a Certified Medical Physics Specialist within the field of Radiation Oncology. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Wollongong (UoW) and was awarded the University Medal in the Faculty of Engineering in 2006. I subsequently went on to complete my PhD in a joint project with UoW and Loma Linda University Medical Center in California.
Dr Eleanor Peirce is a Senior Lecturer in the Discipline of Anatomy and Pathology, School of Medicine within the Faculty of Health Sciences. She is the coordinator for the Anatomical Sciences major, and the courses Comparative Reproductive Biology of Mammals, Biology and Development of Human Tissues, and Cells and Tissues. She also contributes to coordination of the Honours program in the School of Medicine.
I am a veterinary scientist with long-standing interests in the biology of cancer, using rodent models to investigate basic cell and molecular biology aspects. Since my appointment to the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences 5 years ago, I have applied this interest to clinical veterinary oncology research as well as continuing work with rodent models. My interests have also recently branched into the molecular underpinnings of feline-specific insecticide sensitivity.
