Dr Kim Kiely

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Biography

Kim is a postdoctoral research fellow within the Centre for Research on Ageing Health and Wellbeing (CRAHW), whose research is orientated by a contextualised perspective to human development across the life-course. He currently holds a Fellowship from the Alzheimer’s Australia Dementia Research Foundation, and was recently awarded an NHMRC Early Career Fellowship to commence in 2015.

Kim’s core research interests cover aspects of healthy and productive ageing, focusing on the social, functional and cognitive impacts of sensory loss in late life. He also maintains a strong interest in psychiatric epidemiology, and is involved in a research program investigating the mental health of welfare recipients.
