Mathew is an AHPRA registered and endorsed Clinical Neuropsychologist and member of the APS College of Clinical Neuropsychologists. He holds the appointment of Associate Professor of Neuropsychology and Mental Health at the University of the Sunshine Coast (Australia), conducting research into neuropsychological markers of risk for developing Alzheimer’s dementia in adults with mild cognitive impairment as well as the potential for late life education to prevent the onset of dementia or reduce the incidence of age-related cognitive decline. He is also engaged on the NHMRC funded Tasmanian Healthy Brain Project, a world-first longitudinal study of the potential benefit of University education in older adults to reduce the incident risk of dementia and mild cognitive impairment. The Tasmanian Health Brain Project is being conducted in conjunction with colleagues from the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre at the University of Tasmania.
