Dr David R. Painter

The Hopkins Centre, Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Griffith University

Dr David R. Painter has a PhD in the field to cognitive neuroscience undertaken at The Queensland Brain Institute (The University of Queensland), where he used neuroimaging and neurostimulation techniques to investigate the neural basis of basic cognitive processes in health and disease. He has since undertaken Research Fellowships at Hitachi Medical Corporation (Japan) and The Science of Learning Research Centre (The University of Queensland), where he has applied basic science techniques to investigate emerging neuroimaging technologies in the context of real-world applications such as learning in the classroom. He is currently employed as a Research Fellow at The Hopkins Centre (Griffith University), where he is developing virtual reality applications for cognitive assessment and rehabilitation following brain injury. He also works as a Research Fellow with Professor Julia Crilly (Emergency Care, Griffith University) where he employs epidemiological techniques to investigate predictors of premature mortality recorded routinely in Queensland emergency department data.
