Biosketch:

Awarded first class honours in Psychology in 2009, Matthew began his PhD the following year at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia. Matthew’s previous research has focused on the biological determinants of cognitive abilities paying specific attention to the role of arterial stiffness in cognitive ageing. Currently, Matthew is involved in a number of randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials exploring the effects of various nutraceuticals on cognitive and cardiovascular health. Under the supervision of Con Stough, Andrew Pipingas and Andrew Scholey, Matthew’s PhD is concerned with the effects of the Indian herb Bacopa and the French pine bark extract Pycnogenol on cognitive performance following 12 months of administration in healthy elderly subjects. Matthew aims to uncover the mechanisms by which these supplements improve cognitive performance by investigating mediating factors including cardiovascular variables and biomarkers of inflammation and oxidative stress.
