Overview

Professor Henry is an ARC Future Fellow and Professor in the School of Psychology UQ, and is also an affiliate Professor at the Queensland Brain Institute.

Henry leads a group that particularly focuses on how social cognition and prospection are disrupted by normal adult ageing and clinical illness. Social cognition broadly refers to the processing of social information, such as the ability to recognise facial emotions, and to appropriately attend to eye gaze cues. Prospection refers to future-oriented cognitions and behaviours, such as prospective memory and episodic foresight. Henry's work has provided important insights into when and why these critical cognitive abilities break down. Reflecting the importance of this work, Henry has published more than 160 peer‑reviewed papers in her career to date. These publications appear in high impact outlets that include Cognition, Developmental Science, Psychology and Aging, Emotion, Brain, Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews, and Nature Reviews Neurology. Henry’s research has already been cited more than 9000 times in Scopus with Google Scholar listing more than 16,000 citations.

Henry has also received continuous prestigious and highly competitive research funding: ~$5m to date. This has included leading six Australian Research Council Discovery Projects. Since 2016 alone, she has been the recipient of an ARC Future Fellowship ($965K), a UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) grant (£500K), and an NHMRC Boosting Dementia Research grant ($700K).

Between 2011 and 2017, Henry was Editor in Chief of the British Journal of Clinical Psychology. She is also currently an Associate Editor for Gerontology, and serves on a number of editorial boards, including Psychological Science. In 2016 Prof Henry was the recipient of the UQ Research Higher Degree Supervision Award from the Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences: competitive across the Faculty’s six schools and three research centres. This was in recognition of the excellent outcomes her PhD students have achieved. This includes postdoctoral positions at Harvard Medical School (two recent graduates) and the University of Cambridge.
