Hi, I’m Jane Richmond and when I grow up I want to be a motor bike racer!

But for now I’m happy to be a neurophysiology scientist because it allows me to work in all sorts of interesting place – cities Brisbane, Melbourne (RCH), GOSH (UK), Newcastle and country labs  Rockhampton and Bundaberg.

I get to meet lots of fun kids and their parents, look at interesting brain waves and now I also get to work with Dr Harry Singh and his great team.  These days I do just EEG tests and try to make them as easy and tolerable as I can because they don’t hurt or take too long.  So if you want to look like a spaceman or Rapunzel for half an hour come on in!



Previous studies include Bachelor of Music (2006) and Certificate III in Dental Assisting (2007). 

Kirsty commenced as a Neurophysiology Scientist in the Neurosciences Department at the Mater Children's Hospital, Brisbane, in May 2009, performing a range of EEG's on babies, children and adults. It was at this time that she commenced her Neurophysiology Technology studies through RMIT Melbourne, with completion of a Certificate IV in June 2012. 

In February 2014, Kirsty began working alongside Dr Harry Singh at Gold Coast Child Neurology, performing EEG's on babies and children.  

In December 2015 at the closure of the Mater Children's Hospital, Kirsty commenced working as a Neurophysiology Scientist in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) at The Lady Cilento Children's Hospital, Brisbane, focusing on long term video EEG monitoring on patients with intractable epilepsy.
