Her diverse clinical research experience has involved studying early onset dementia, alcohol dependence, and cognitive rehabilitation for acquired brain injuries, mild cognitive impairment and epilepsy.

Working in close collaboration with Aboriginal communities, this work has highlighted the high prevalence and incidence of dementia in this population, and potentially modifiable risk factors across the life course. Current research aims to promote ageing well, identify dementia prevention and healthy ageing strategies, and translate findings into culturally sensitive dementia education and care.
