Dr Trawley is a cognitive research psychologist with a PhD awarded by The University of Sussex in 2006. Since then he has been involved in a range of research projects related to psychology and health. This work has included clinical drug trials, a county wide dementia prevalence study and a RCT on the beneficial effects of a long-term hybrid closed loop insulin delivery on glycaemia when driving.
- Cognitive psychology
- Research methods
His research interests are focused on the applied aspects of cognitive research. For example, he is currently researching the role of prospective memory and attention in diabetes self-management and the impact of new technologies (e.g. ‘closed loop insulin pumps’) on cognitive functioning. Steve also has a strong interest in road safety and is currently overseeing two field studies investigating Australian drivers who use insulin to manage their diabetes.
