Melanie Takarangi

I am currently a Professor in Psychology at Flinders University. I use experimental paradigms and theory from clinical psychology and cognitive science to understand real-life situations in which memory distortion can be maladaptive, and in which people are exposed either directly or indirectly to potentially traumatic events or content. My research focuses on autobiographical memory for negative and traumatic experiences, intrusive and involuntary memories, anticipated trauma and the role of warnings, potential trauma exposure on social media and in the workplace, the relationship between alcohol, crime and memory, and other legal implications of memory distortion. I have a large and diverse team of PhD students, Masters students, Honours students, undergraduate research placement students and Research Assistants.
