I am an Australian career neuroscientist and research neuropathologist specializing in neurodegeneration and have been a Research Fellow in the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and Australian Research Council (ARC) systems since 1988. I was appointed Professor of Medicine (2003) then of Neuroscience (2008), then NHMRC Senior Principal Research Fellow (2010) at the University of New South Wales, and am now a NHMRC Senior Leadership Fellow located at the University of Sydney until 2025. I have successfully worked with many Australian and international researchers on important scientific questions on Parkinson’s disease, multiple system atrophy, dementia with Lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementias and motor neurodegenerative diseases. My research has directly influenced clinical practice by providing the evidence base for understanding the pathologies underlying neurodegenerative diseases, clarifying the trajectory of these diseases over time and exploring any potential variability.
