Dr. Anne van Dongen

Postdoctoral Research Fellow
I'm working on a 3-year postdoctoral research project at Lisa Williams' lab, investigating the emotional underpinnings of blood donation motivation. This project is co-funded by the Australian Red Cross Blood Service and the Australian Research Council.

Dr Poppy Watson

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Working in the labs of Mike Le Pelley and Steve Most, my research interests lie at the intersection of motivation, attention and choice behaviour. The mechanisms that underlie reward-seeking behaviour are investigated in both healthy individuals and patient populations and this research aims to understand how and why maladaptive and compulsive reward seeking behaviour arises (i.e. as seen in addiction and obesity).
