Personal profile

Public Profile

Jacqueline is passionate about research that can promote a healthy start to life. She is interested in the role of early nutrition in neurodevelopment, with the goal of optimising the development and functioning of the brain, particularly in disadvantaged children.

She was awarded her PhD in March 2013 in the area of nutrition, paediatrics and developmental psychology. She now holds a MS McLeod Research Fellowship as an early career researcher. For the last seven years Jacqueline has worked with the Child Nutrition Research Centre on three of the largest randomised controlled trials in the area of neonatal and perinatal nutrition. All three are NHMRC funded and are aimed at improving a range of outcomes of children through ensuring optimal nutrition. Her work has involved assessing the neurodevelopmental outcomes of these children to evaluate intervention efficacy.

Currently she supervisors Hons, Masters and PhD level psychology students. She is increasingly shifting the focus of her research to investigate the development of infants born preterm, and predictors of child development.
