Assistant Supervisor – Only eligible to supervise with a fully accredited Principal or Co-supervisor

My primary research interests are in cognitive functioning and cognitive neuropsychology across the lifespan, applied driving psychology, and road safety. My research has focused on understanding the relationships between cognitive function and driving behaviour across the lifespan. My research aims to use this information to determine fitness to drive, in particular for older adults and individuals with neuro-degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease.
