Dr Kerryn Pike Tracey Banivanua Mar Research Fellow, Psychology

Dr Pike is a Senior Research Fellow and registered Clinical Neuropsychologist based in the School of Psychology and Public Health. She was awarded a Tracey Banivanua Mar Research Fellowship in 2019. Dr Pike's research program encompasses two broad areas: 1) Neuropsychological and biomarker characterisation of preclinical Alzheimer’s disease (preAD) and 2) Interventions to improve cognition, and hence the lives of those with memory concerns or difficulties. Much of her work focuses on intervention with older adults, including people with subjective memory complaints, mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, as well as those who are ageing normally. More recently, she has been working on evaluating cognitive interventions to improve the lives of cancer survivors. She has been exploring future developments of neuropsychological interventions, including using online formats. Dr Pike is also interested in the development of sensitive neuropsychological assessment tasks that can detect the subtle, early cognitive changes associated with prodromal Alzheimer's disease, as well as assessments that have everyday relevance (such as those set in a naturalistic setting).
