  • Associate Professor Kristin Laurens

    My primary research interests are in child and youth mental health. I conduct multi-disciplinary longitudinal research projects that use cognitive neuroscience and life-course epidemiology methods to characterise developmental pathways from childhood to diverse health, social, and educational outcomes in adolescence and young adulthood. I am motivated to identify new prevention and early intervention opportunities in childhood that promote successful development for all individuals, and I work with clinical colleagues and educational professionals to develop new prevention and intervention programs for young people. I am currently supported by an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship.

  • Dr Megan Louise Willis

    My primary research interests are in social cognition, emotion processing and cognitive neuropsychology. My research has focused on understanding the cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in processing emotional expressions and making social judgements. My research also aims to uncover the reasons why certain people have difficulties recognising the emotional expressions of others and using emotional expressions to guide their social judgements. My research has primarily employed cognitive neuropsychological, electrophysiological and behavioural techniques.

  • Dr Erin Conway

    Dr Erin Conway is a senior lecturer in Speech Pathology. Her research interests include the impact of communication changes in dementia on the experiences of people with dementia, and the evaluation of treatments to improve communication for people with dementia. Intervention approaches include communication training for carers of people with dementia, and exploring treatment efficacy of word-retrieval rehabilitation in progressive aphasia. Dr Conway is also interested in cognition and language processing in healthy aging and acquired neurological disorders (eg. stroke, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease) and the use of EEG methodology in the investigation of neurolinguistic processing.

  • School of Behavioural and Health Sciences

  • Professor Peter Wilson

    Professor Wilson is Co-Director of the Centre for Disability and Development Research (CeDDR) and Professor of Developmental Psychology at ACU. Before that he was Deputy Head (R&I) in the School of Health Sciences at RMIT University where he worked from 2000-2011. He leads international programs of research in child development, disability and rehabilitation which now span 23 years and over 120 peer-reviewed publications. His research involves two streams: (i) mechanisms of movement and cognition in typical child development and in neurodevelopmental disorders (esp. DCD), and (ii) innovations in neurorehabilitation using VR, including the award-winning Elements DNA (EDNA) system. Prof. Wilson is past President of the International Society for Research on DCD.
