Senior Lecturer, Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre
University of Tasmania

Dr Goldbery's primary school in rural Tasmania had one room with six grades; my high school was in the city. After graduating from the University of Melbourne, she headed to the United States for further study, intending to be there for a year or two... After 35 years, she returned to Tasmania in 2014 to join the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre.

Throughout this journey, her research experiences have been varied, enriching, and always with unexpected and rewarding opportunities. Her current work at Wicking, with funding from the Australian Government and the support of UTAS and community colleagues, is yet another exciting adventure. Dr Goldberg will share this fascinating research journey in this Research Excellence event.
