Biography
I completed my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of Wollongong. I then went to the University of Bristol to work as a post-doc with Professor Chris Jarrold and Professor Alan Baddeley. I then took up my current position at UWA.
Key research
The development of working memory in typical and atypical populations and its relationship to higher-level cognitive performance and educational achievement.
The effectiveness of working memory training.
The developmental trajectory of social vulnerability in children, including the cognitive underpinnings that are associated with social vulnerability and the social consequences of social vulnerability.
The relationship between educational and mental health outcomes for Western Australian children and the developmental pathways to educational achievement in Western Australian children.
