Flavie Waters received M.S. degrees in developmental and clinical neuropsychology from the University of Essex (UK) and the University of Western Australia, and a Ph.D. degree in cognitive neuropsychiatry from the Centre for Clinical Research in Neuropsychiatry, University of Western Australia. Her postdoctoral work was conducted at the Centre for Clinical Research in Neuropsychiatry in Perth, Australia, where she examined the electrophysiological and cognitive brain mechanisms underlying psychotic symptoms in schizophrenia. She serves now as a Senior Research Fellow and Director of Research of the Older Adult Clinical Research Unit in Perth. Dr Waters’ interests include the brain-behaviour relationship of neuropsychiatric disorders, particularly schizophrenia. A common theme underlying her research is to characterise quantitatively specific components of neuropsychiatric disorders and to assess them at the level of psychopathology, cognition, electrophysiology, sleep-wake behaviours, and genetics. She is the organizer and convenor of the International Consortium on Hallucination Research.
