A bit about my research
I'm investigating the prevalence and impact of autism spectrum disorder symptoms in primary aged children with ADHD. 

Why I chose to study at Murdoch Children's
It is the place to be if you are interested in child health research. I wanted to work clincially as a psychologist too, along side my research, so being based at the hospital was a perfect fit for me. I've really appreciated the mentors from Murdoch Children's that I have had along the way

Highlights of my time at Murdoch Children's so far
Highlights so far have been presenting my research at the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Conference in San Diego in 2014 and completing my Child, Adolescent and Family Psychology Internship at The Royal Children's Hospital.
