Centre for Healthy BrainAgeing

Dr Louise Mewton is a UNSW Scientia Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing. Louise’s research focuses on the application of innovative methods, techniques and technologies to further our understanding of the epidemiology, assessment and prevention of problematic alcohol use across the lifespan. Her program of research makes links across epidemiology, information technology, neuropsychiatry and prevention research, and reflects global research priorities. She is currently using large-scale harmonised data from the COSMIC cohort studies to investigate trajectories of alcohol use in older adults and their relationship with physical health and cognition. Her program of research also focuses on improving the assessment of alcohol use and related harms, as well as the development and implementation of internet-delivered alcohol prevention programs across the lifespan.

Louise completed her PhD in 2012 at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre, UNSW. She was then appointed Statistical Advisor and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Clinical Research Unit for Anxiety and Depression, UNSW. She received an Australian Rotary Health Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2014 to investigate the effectiveness of online cognitive training for the prevention of mental illness and risky alcohol use. In 2018, she was appointed UNSW Scientia Lecturer to continue her program of research focusing on the epidemiology, assessment and prevention of alcohol use across the lifespan.

Louise's research interests include the intersection between mental health and substance use disorders (comorbidity), the neurobiological and cognitive effects of alcohol use and biostatistical methods. She is also interested in diagnostic models of psychopathology, and improving the classification and diagnosis of mental illness and substance use disorders.
