Dr Kate Witteveen - Nat Sch Psychology (Faculty of Health Sciences)

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


My research interests are predominantly focussed on the interplay between cognition and psychological disorders. My PhD investigated cognitive risk factors for depression(specifically rumination and thought suppression)in females. I am currently involved in a number of projects investigating the neurocognitive impact of concussion. Those projects include the development and assessment of a test battery to assess neurocognitive deficits and facilitate training to aid in recovery. I am also interested in all aspects of memory, as well as scale development and validation.
