Mac MacLachlan recently returned from New Zeland/Aotearoa and Australia. 

At Massey University he gave a presentation on macropsychology and met with Prof Stu Carr and Prof Darrin Hodgetts, both of the Department of Psychology, where they discussed plans for future collaboration.

Mac was kindly hosted at UNSW in Sydney by Prof Friebert Kohler, Medical Director of Hammond Care’s Braeside Hospital. Mac gave a presentation on assistive technology at Braeside Hospital  and also presented Medical Grand Rounds at Liverpool Hospital; a major inter-university teaching hospital in Sydney.

Mac also met with Professor Catherine Bridge from the School of Architecture and Design and was shown around her Livability Lab, part of the Enabling Built Environment Programme at UNSW; and with Dr Jasmien Herssens, a visiting academic from the Faculty of Architecture & Arts, Hasselt University, Belgium.
