Qualifications:

2009 - PhD (University of Western Sydney)

2003 - BA (Hons) (University of Wollongong)

Background:

 As a research psychologist, my research has largely revolved around cognitive psychology in general, and memory in particular. As a professional musician, I have played piano, keyboards, organ, guitar, and bass with artists such as Justin Bond (US), Dave Graney, Lazy Susan, and the Aerial Maps. So once I realised that I could combine my two major interests - music and cognitive psychology - in a PhD which I completed in 2009, there was no looking back for me!
