Andrew joined the group as an undergraduate assistant in 2009 to research possible compensatory, functional changes in healthy people with structural brain disease characteristic of dementia. In this position he has developed understanding and skills in this area especially in neuroimaging techniques such as volumetry and functional anaylsis of brain networks.

He is currently a 5th year medical student at the University of NSW and continues to work with the group today, in combination with his studies.

His major research interest is neuroplasticity, particularly compensatory mechanisms in response to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. With his free time Andrew loves to travel and ski.
