Narelle Hansell was born in Townsville, North Queensland, but spent her formative years in Brisbane

Narelle Hansell was born in Townsville, North Queensland, but spent her formative years in Brisbane.  In 1997, she obtained a BA with 1st Class Honors in the field of Psychology through the University of Queensland (UQ) and followed this with a PhD in behaviour genetics (Supervised by Dr Margie Wright (QIMR), Prof Gina Geffen (UQ), and Prof Nick Martin (QIMR)).  For her PhD, she examined genetic influence on electrophysiological measures of working memory collected from healthy adolescents.  Since 2003, she has been employed as a Research Officer at QIMR, where she has continued to explore genetic influence on cognitive and other phenotypes.
