I am completing my PhD in Medical Science, Neuroscience through the Adelaide Business School.

My research topic is:

The effects of creativity on neuroplasticity and cognition in adults with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

People who have PTSD are at higher risk of Alzheimer's disease than the general population. My project aims to  develop and trial a clinical cognitive intervention program to help remediate the effects of cognitive impairment and decline in people with PTSD.
