I am enrolled in the combined MPsych (Clinical Neuropsychology)/PhD program. My research interests are mainly centred on cognitive change after injury and illness. My PhD project is part of the larger Take CARe Biomarkers study conducted out of the Royal Children's Hospital which aims to uncover why some children recover from concussion much slower than others. Specifically, my project involves researching whether the difference in recovery time can be attributed to microstructural brain damage. When I'm not chained to the desk researching, I enjoy binge watching bad movies and avoiding adulthood.
