His doctoral thesis was on the topic of depression in aged care homes. He was University of Melbourne Senior Lecturer (1989-1994), Associate Professor (1995-2005) and Professor of Psychiatry of Old Age (2005-2007), before taking up the post of Professor of Ageing and Health and Director of the National Ageing Research Institute in September 2007. He has extensive clinical experience in old age psychiatry and was director of the St Vincent's Health Aged Psychiatry Service from 2005 to 2008.

'... clearly written ... lavish illustration.' Nature Medicine 'Besides presenting the data for the clinician, this comprehensive review will also be appreciated by researchers in this field.' Clare Galton, Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry ' ... in the next edition - which will undoubtedly be needed ...' Francis I. Caird ' ... well structured, with the right balance of specific explanations and comparisons of the different neuroimaging techniques, and description of their indications, advantages, disadvantages and limitations from the perspective of a clinician.' Zuzana Walker ' ... well-written and informative.' Neuro-radiology 'The book's real strength comes from breadth of imaging techniques covered and its logical division into background, findings in normal ageing and specific disorders and a subsequent brief, non-prescriptive review of the principles guiding the rational and effective use of clinical neuroimaging. In addition to being a thorough review and helpful introduction to the large volume of research that continues to emerge in the field, this book should certainly meet its stated primary aim of utility in day-to-day clinical practice.' International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry '... comprehensively describes the neurologic and psychiatric changes in the ageing brain ... neuropathology of brain ageing and complements other functional neuroimaging reference sources.' James M. Mountz, Clinical Nuclear Medicine
