Outside of Nous

He was an Honours student at Orygen, The National Centre of Excellence in Youth Health, where he wrote a research thesis investigating early biological indicators of psychosis in young adults.

In his spare time...

Aidan enjoys spending time outdoors, cooking good food, and watching his more talented friends flourish in Melbourne’s live music scene. He has recently taken up rollerblading – whether this has been a good thing it’s too soon to say.
