Understanding genetics of ageing and age-related disorders are Chandana’s main research interests. Chandana works on the three major cohorts of CHEBA, the Sydney Centenarian Study, Older Australian Twins Study (OATS) and the Sydney Memory and Ageing Study (MAS). Currently, she works as a Research assistant in the Genetics and Epigenomics Group, with Dr Karen Mather at the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA), UNSW. In recognition of her work during her Masters, Chandana was awarded the Gordon Parker Award by the School of Psychiatry for the Best Student Paper in 2014.
