Dr Brad Farrant is a Senior Research Fellow who has been at the Telethon Kids Institute since 2010. Prior to joining the Institute he completed a Bachelor of Science with Honours and a PhD in Developmental Psychology at the University of Western Australia.
Brad's research focuses on the importance of early childhood development. He is particularly interested in how to connect this to strengths of Aboriginal people and culture. Coming from the perspective of Developmental Psychology Brad is also interested in how broader ecological factors like biodiversity loss, population growth, peak water and climate change will interact to affect children's development now and in the future.
