Research Profile:

The overarching theme of my research involves the translation of cognitive neuroscience research into brain and behaviour-based rehabilitation interventions to enhance higher cognitive (i.e. executive) functioning in healthy aging, acquired brain injury and brain disease - an approach I describe as cognitive rehabilitation neuroscience.
