Detailed Biography:

Bernard Balleine received his BA with first class honours and with the university medal from the University of Sydney in 1987, together with the Thomson Prize and Australian Psychological Association Prize for Psychology honours. In 1989 he won a Commonwealth Scholarship and a College Scholarship from Churchill College, Cambridge UK to support research towards his Ph.D in comparative psychology, which he received from the University of Cambridge in 1993. Subsequently, he was elected to a Research Fellowship at Jesus College Cambridge and spent three years conducting post-doctoral research in behavioral neuroscience in the Department of Experimental Psychology at Cambridge University. He was appointed Assistant Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles in 1995 and in 1996 won a FIRST Award from the National Institute of Mental Health. In 2000 he was appointed Associate Professor and in 2004 Full Professor at UCLA which is his current position. He was elected a Fellow of the American Psychological Association in 2004 and in 2005 he was appointed Associate Director for Research in the Brain Research Institute.
