Traumatic brain injury rehabilitation
Catherine is a senior lecturer and program deputy lead for the brain injury and rehabilitation theme at the Monash University-based Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health, and the Monash-Epworth Rehabilitation Research Centre. She's academic lead of the neuropsychology and concussion clinics at the Monash Psychology Centre, and an honorary senior research fellow within the National Trauma Research Institute at The Alfred.
Traumatic brain injury is one of the main causes of disability in young people, and results in significant lifetime care burden. Catherine's aim has been to develop and conduct translational research that will improve scientific understanding of impaired cognition in these patients, and rehabilitation treatments to facilitate return to work, study, driving, sport or other activities. She's established an international and interdisciplinary network of collaborations.
