  • About: Dr Trevor Steward is a NHMRC/MRFF Emerging Leadership Fellow at The University of Melbourne in the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences. Trevor’s primary research interest focusses on using ultra high-field 7-Telsa MRI technology to understand how subcortical regions of the brain contribute to common symptoms found across psychiatric disorders. Although the majority of his research to date has examined the neuropsychopathology of eating disorders, he has also conducted studies on gambling disorder, PTSD, and obesity. Trevor’s aim is to leverage neuroimaging tools to inform brain-based treatments and to predict individual clinical outcomes.
