Audrey is a Clinical Psychologist / Clinical Neuropsychologist, Senior lecturer at The Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences, University of Melbourne, Australia and ACC/HRC Research Fellow at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. Her research interests focus on childhood traumatic brain injury (TBI), with a particular focus on differentiating the effect of age at injury and the long-term outcomes for childhood TBI. Dr McKinlay's research into the long-term outcomes of TBI in children has been instrumental in changing the way outcomes of such injuries are viewed. A pivotal paper from her research, published in 2002 in the respected British Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry has been cited over 160 times by key authors in the field. It was also cited by the World Health Organisation task force on brain injury in 2004 as high quality research that called into question their findings from the literature. Her present studies focus on prediction of TBI and adult outcomes for children who experience a TBI event. She has been a named investigator on grants totalling more than $1.6 million since gaining her PhD in 2008. She has over 60 peer-review publications, and has experience working with large cohorts and traumatic brain injury outcome studies.
