Harvard Fellowship from AAA

I have received The 2013 University of Queensland Fellowship from the American Australian Association, worth $40,000 (press release - Emerging Australian stars receive top prizes).  I’ll spend some time at Harvard working with Jeremy Wolfe, who is Professor of Ophthalmology and Radiology at Harvard Medical School and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT. I will receive the award at Black Tie ceremony at the Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.
