I am a student in the Master of Clinical Psychology program at the University of South Australia and a Research Fellow at Flinders University. I have been working with people with dementia for many years across clinical and research contexts. I am interested in the health services available for people with dementia, especially those with young onset dementia or psychiatric comorbidities, as well as dementia epidemiology. I have a particular interest in the role of psychological trauma and its ongoing impacts in late life and after the onset of dementia.

I am a fourth year Psychology (Honours) student at UniSA. For my project I am excited to research how well skills learned in virtual reality can translate to the real world. My participants will be assessed on their skills playing table tennis. Through the use of virtual reality, each participant will undergo a series of table tennis training sessions. Then, we will reassess their performance in the real world.

I am a fourth year Psychology (Honours) student at UniSA. I have previously worked with CAIN during a Vacation Scholarship, conducting a scoping review to investigate what makes a 'Dementia Friendly Community'. My Honours research project is investigating dementia risk factor knowledge in the general Australian population and how/why this knowledge has been obtained. The aim of this research is to add to the current literature in measuring what knowledge Australian's hold regarding dementia risk factors and extending it by investigating how and why people develop their knowledge of dementia risk factors.
