Nigel Russell

Nigel was born and grew up in Bathurst and studied Law and Economics at ANU in Canberra.  After graduation, Nigel drove around Australia, stopping halfway to live in Darwin for a year, where he worked at the Department of Law.  He then worked for a couple of years at a law firm in Sydney before moving to Hanoi, Vietnam to help set up the firm’s office there.  Nigel fell in love with the country, and with Thuy (his wife) and ended up staying for 20 years.  During that time, he worked as a lawyer with Allens Linklaters (advising foreign companies investing in Vietnam) and he set up and managed The Australian International School with Thuy.  They moved to Sydney with their three children in 2015 – the two eldest have since graduated from Reddam House, where the youngest is currently in Year 10.

Steve Most

My research is grounded in cognitive psychology, with strong links to social psychology, clinical psychology, and neuroscience. My lab specialises in relationships between motivation, emotion, and attentional control. I am passionate about fostering an understanding of psychology outside the university. I will be talking about how students can use the science of memory to do better in school.
