My research focuses on the application of clinical neuropsychology to better understand the cognitive and psychological effects of insults to the brain caused by injury and disease. My research interests include the neuropsychology of schizophrenia, particularly in relation to aspects of sexual dimorphism in brain morphology and laterality; neuropsychological correlates of tardive dyskinesia, and more recently, studies relating to the effect of autoimmune disease on neurocognitive function and the role of anxiety in the onset and perpetuation of post-concussive syndrome following head injury.

Research Interests:
  • Clinical neuropsychology
  • Neuropsychology and neurobiology of schizophrenia
  • Neurodevelopmental aspects of cerebral asymmetry
  • Application of neuropsychology in acute hospital settings
