Michele Haynes is professor of data analytics for education and social research in the Learning Sciences Institute Australia. She is an experienced statistician with expertise in estimation of complex models for social applications using longitudinal data from multiple sources including national panel surveys and government administrative data. Michele's research interests include improvement of statistical techniques for investigating trajectories in education and social outcomes for young individuals, identifying the drivers of change and how these vary for disadvantaged groups. Michele has influenced methodological development through various roles including Chair of the Social Statistics Section of the Statistical Society of Australia, Associate Editor for the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society Series A (Statistics in Society), Statistical Advisor for the International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, and through the delivery of professional training in longitudinal data analysis to government personnel. Michele has attracted considerable research funding through grants including an ARC Discovery project that has developed an online survey tool for gathering data from Indigenous people to better understand their experiences and perceptions of architectural health settings, and a recently awarded ARC Linkage grant for a project to study community-based STEM professional learning for teachers of middle years. She has also led numerous projects in partnership with government agencies. Most recently, Michele has been successful with an Education Horizon grant in 2019-2020 with colleagues Joy Cumming, Melanie Spallek and Yoon-Suk Hwang, for a project on "Factors that impact on long-term achievement and retention for students with ASD in Queensland government schools: Evidence from administrative data."

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?
