Career Summary

Biography

I trained in Neurology and Geriatrics in Australia (FRACP) and Behavioural Neurology and Epidemiology in the USA at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Centre and Columbia University in New York City. My research in the USA was concerned with epidemiological aspects of dementing disorders. After returning to Australia in 1997, I was appointed as Clinical Director to establish and develop a neuropsychiatry service which now serves the greater Newcastle area and northern NSW. My research in Australia has focussed on efforts to develop simple and cost effective means of detecting cognitive impairment leading to the creation of the Audio Recorded Cognitive Screen. More recently, we have been exploring novel ways to assess olfaction as a possible biomarker for early Alzheimer's disease. My other main area of research relates to neuropsychiatric issues in offender populations, particularly traumatic brain injury and impulsivity.
