Biographical details

Andrew Kemp is a multi-disciplinary researcher, academic, and editor for leading open science journals including PLOS ONE, Frontiers in Psychology and Frontiers in Psychiatry. His research spans affective neuroscience through to epidemiology, bridging the gap between biological mechanism and longterm public health. Findings have been published in over 100 journal articles and book chapters, and these have attracted significant attention from scientific and lay communities leading to an h-index of 33 (since 2001) and many articles in lay press.

He is currently an Invited International Visiting Professor at the University of São Paulo and a Global Burden of Disease Expert for the University of Washington. He is also an Honorary Associate Professor at the University of Sydney at which he has developed a productive program of research to better understand the relationship between mental and physical wellbeing. In 2014, he became a member of the Global Young Academy, a prestigious world society of leading, young scientists, in recognition of his research achievements and commitment to community service.

Research interests

cognitive and affective neuroscience, neuropsychiatry and mental health, biological bases of behaviour and individual differences, positive psychology

Teaching and supervision

There are a variety of areas in which I contributed to departmental teaching. These include cognitive and affective neuroscience, abnormal, health and biological psychology, research methods and statistics.

While my career has been research-intensive, research and teaching are two sides of the same coin. One informs the other. Over the last decade, I have delivered lectures to undergraduate and postgraduate students, and have supervised many students at multiple universities including Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, University of Sydney in Australia, and the University of São Paulo in Brazil.

I have recently completed two invited book chapters to be published by Oxford University Press. These chapters - one on the neuroscience of emotion and the other, on predicting treatment response in major depressive disorder - are an attempt to synthesise lecture material I have presented to undergraduate and postgraduate students in the faculties of science and medicine, as well as colleagues at national and international conferences over the last decade.

I am also completing a major review for publication in Frontiers in Psychology - a leading, open-source journal, which is now part of the Nature Publishing Group. This is an invited review and inaugural article after becoming Associate Editor for the journal in 2013. In this review, I propose that vagal function - assessed through heart rate variability, a psychophysiological measure that is extracted from ECG recordings - to be a structural link between emotion and health. This is a topic that is particularly relevant to the intersection of health and biological psychology, two psychology disciplines that I am particularly excited about.

Also relevant, in regards to departmental teaching is my passion and support for open science and learning demonstrated in my editorial roles on the boards of PLOS ONE and Frontiers in Psychology, as well as my contributions to two novel initiatives in the teaching of psychology including the NOBA and Go Boundless projects. These exciting initiatives have the opportunity to transform teaching in Psychology, including making textbooks more affordable for students, and the availability of customisable teaching aids for lecturers.

Current projects

I am currently in Brazil as a Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of São Paulo. I am working on the largest epidemiological study of the health and wellbeing of Brazilians.

I am directing all analyses and publication of outcomes on the mechanisms underpinning the relationship between mood and anxiety disorders and cardiovascular disease, with a particular focus on heart rate variability, a psychophysiological marker of health and wellbeing.
