Taylor Swain

I am a first-year 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). We are using prospective memory tasks as an objective measure of everyday impairment in people who have suffered a traumatic event. I currently assist with lab management and mentor the undergraduate interns and volunteers. My other hobbies and interests are dancing, Harry Potter and dogs.
