    Michele Haynes is professor of data analytics for education research at ILSTE. She is an accredited statistician (Statistical Society of Australia) with extensive experience as a statistical methodologist, statistical consultant and project leader in quantitative social research. Michele is also a Program Director with ACU?s new Research Centre Digital Data and Assessment in Education. Michele has expertise in the estimation of complex models for social applications using data from multiple sources including national panel surveys and government administrative data. Her research focus is on methodological innovation for longitudinal education research including analysis of academic performance and well-being trajectories for students through the school years and identifying the factors that trigger improvements and maintain performance. Michele is currently lead researcher on an Education Horizon project that uses administrative data to investigate factors that impact on long-term achievement and retention for students with autism spectrum disorder in Queensland government schools, and a co-investigator on an ARC Linkage grant for a project that studies the effectiveness of community-based STEM professional learning for teachers of middle years.

    Michele has influenced social statistics research through editorial roles including Associate Editor for the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society Series A (Statistics in Society) and Statistical Advisor for the International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, as well as through the delivery of professional training in longitudinal data analysis to government personnel. She has considerable experience leading projects for government agencies, including the Australian Federal Police, the Commonwealth Department of Social Services (DSS), Queensland Department of Premier and Cabinet and Queensland Department of Education.

    Curriculum vitae

  • Faculty of Health Sciences

  • Nat Sch Psychology

  • Dr Valentina Lorenzetti

    Fully accredited supervisor - Can supervise as principal supervisor

    Dr Lorenzetti is Senior Lecturer, Lead of the Neuroscience of Addiction & Mental Health Program and Deputy Director of the Healthy Brain and Mind Research Centre, at the School of Behavioural and Health Sciences, Faculty of Health, Australian Catholic University.

    Her research program aims to map vulnerability to and recovery of brain and mental health harms in chronic addictions and psychopathology. An additional goal is to establish consensus-based gold standards to measure substance use and misuse in research, treatment and public health settings.

    Dr Lorenzetti' long-term vision is to carry out world-leading research on the pathophysiology of addiction and to alleviate its devastating harms on ~55M people globally, by combining advanced multimodal neuroimaging tools, global multi-site cohorts and new interventions.

    Her Program welcomes national and international student exchange.

    Examples of research questions examined by the Neuroscience of Addiction and Mental Health Program include:

    - Who is most vulnerable to brain and mental health harms, among substance users?

    - Which neurobiological mechanisms differentiate young adolescent substance users who are vulnerable to brain and mental health harms, from those who are resilient to these harms?

    - How to mitigate brain and mental health harms in chronic addictions? We explore the role of mindfulness-based strategies that target craving, and CBD-based interventions.

    - How does cannabis potency affect brain integrity, and what is the role neuroprotective and neurotoxic cannabinoids in driving and mitigating brain harms in cannabis users?

    - How does recreational and dependent substance use differ at a neurobiological level?

    - How do men and women differ in the neurobiology of substance use?
