Research Interests

My research interests are in the area of developmental neuropsychology, and include defining mild cognitive impairment in patients with Parkinson’s disease (an ongoing project that I am conducting) and the outcomes of traumatic brain injury in childhood. I am also interested in cognitive decline associated with normal and abnormal aging.

As part of my current research, I am investigating the adult outcomes following mild, moderate, and severe traumatic brain injury in early childhood. For this project I am collaborating with John Horwood and Professor David Fergusson at the Christchurch Health and Development Study, and Randolph Grace and Derek Roger from the University of Canterbury. As part of this study we will also be exploring predictive factors and early intervention strategies to reduce long-term disability. This study has been funded by a grant from the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation.
