Details

Role Honorary Fellow
Research area Clinical sciences
Dr Robert (Robbie) Eres is a post-doctoral research fellow within the neurodisability and rehabilitation group at Murdoch Children's Research Institute. His expertise largely surrounds the social determinants of health and how social factors, including perceived social isolation and social exclusion, exacerbate mental health symptoms (e.g., social anxiety, depression, stress) and contribute to poor physical health outcomes.

Dr Eres is experienced in the development and evaluation of digital interventions targeting loneliness and mental health variables in vulnerable groups, including: young people with psychosis, social anxiety disorder, young people from low socioeconomic environments, and minority groups within the LGBTQIA+ community. Prior to his current research trajectory, Dr Eres explored the neurobiological correlates related to empathy and moral judgment and decision making. He used neuroimaging techniques to differentiate functional and structural brain regions associated with empathising with people from different group memberships.
