About Us

Each year our lab hosts Honours students, PhD Research students, Clinical PhD students, and Clinical Masters students. We research many aspects of cognitive and clinical psychology. Using an experimental approach, we study the ways that memories—particularly what and how people remember about adverse personal experiences and their reactions to those experiences—shape resilience in the present and in the future.
Below are some of our current and past students. Click on each profile to learn more about each team member’s role, and their research within the lab.
You can learn more about the work we do in the FACCL lab, around Flinders University, and around the world in our lab blog
