  • Associate Professor Michael Baker

    I am an exercise physiologist whose research, clinical, and teaching career has focused on the integration of exercise, medicine and behaviour change as a means to improve quality of life, particularly among older adults and in clinical populations. I am interested in functional, cardiometabolic, and vascular outcomes in a variety of populations.

    Biographical Information

    I am a Clinical, Health, Educational and Developmental Psychologist and an Associate Professor in Clinical Psychology at Australian Catholic University Melbourne. My primary areas of research include; (1) the role of psychology in understanding and treating eating, weight and body image concerns and their biopsychosocial comorbidities (e.g., diabetes, depression, stigma), (2) the role of parents in improving child behaviour and well being, and (3) promoting evidence-based practice and the generation of practice-based evidence in 'real-world' settings.

    I am particularly interested in developing and/or evaluating evidence based interventions, conducting intervention trials (including efficacy, effectiveness, implementation) and evaluating the effectiveness of real-world treatment programs. I work closely with a range of hospital, community and private treatment services and have recently lead the establishment of the ACU Clinic for Health Eating and Weight to provide high quality low cost assessment, treatment and support for eating, weight and body image concerns and to facilitate clinical research in this area.

  • Dr Valentina Lorenzetti

    Dr Lorenzetti's research focuses on investigating the neurocognitive mechanisms of addiction and mental health using advanced neuroimaging techniques, multi-site international neuroimaging consortia, RCTs and longitudinal study designs.

    Dr Lorenzetti welcomes any new national and international exchange/visiting students, and prospective PhD students interested in getting experience / driving research projects in the areas of neuroimaging, addiction and mental health.

    Her research focuses on distinct streams including unpacking
    (i) whether recreational use vs dependence on substances have a distinct neural signature,
    (ii) the role of gender differences in substance use neurobiology,
    (iii) the role of distinct neuroprotective and neurotoxic cannabinoids on the brain and mental health,
    (iv) the effect of mindfulness-based interventions in recovering aberrant neurobiology in addiction and in alleviating dependence symptoms.

    She is also interested in using neurofeedback and VR techniques as engaging evidence-based interventions in addiction.

  • Dr Skye McLennan

    Dr McLennan's research centres on higher-order processes associated with the frontal lobes such as executive functions, prospective memory, and social behaviour. She is particularly interested in the mechanisms that lead to changes in these abilities and the impact that these changes have in everyday life.

    Her research focuses on groups such as older people, long term opiate users, and people affected by cardiovascular disease. She collaborates closely with researchers from the Cognition and Emotion Research Centre, and employs methods such as neuropsychological assessment, structured behavioural assessments, and biophysiological assessment (e.g. saliva sampling for hormone measurement, EMG, brain stimulation).
