Medicine & Health
Sch Women's&Children's Health

Qualifications: BSc, PhD (UNSW)

Research Interests
Psychological, anatomical and physiological research on the developing senses of smell and taste in humans is aimed at understanding the maturity of the two senses in children and the establishment of clinical tests of smell and taste for children. The latter are being applied to studies of disorders of the two senses and strategies for managing chemosensory dysfunction.

Broad Research Areas
Neuroscience, Obesity, Neuropsychology, ENT

Specific Research Keywords
Aboriginal Health, Development of Sensory Systems, Chemoreception, Measurement in Clinical Research, Neural Injury

Teaching Interests    
Teaching focusses on postgraduate training on the senses of smell and taste and chemosensory dysfunction.
