Taylor Swain

I am a third-year clinical PhD student in the Forensic and Clinical Cognition Lab. My experience with the lab began as a volunteer research assistant in 2016. I then completed the Flinders University Summer Internship Program (2016-2017) with the lab, which gave me extensive experience in project management, participant liaison, and data collection. I completed Honours in 2017, investigating the ease of retrieval effect. My current thesis work aims to investigate the relationship between prospective memory (i.e., memory for intentions to be completed in the future) and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I am completing my third clinical placement at the PTSD clinic at Flinders University, providing Cognitive Processing Therapy to clients with PTSD. I also work as a provisional psychologist at the Department for Correctional Services. In the future, I hope to tie my applied memory research interests with my clinical work in forensic psychology.
