I am a registered Psychologist with Clinical endorsement and Lecturer with the School of Psychology, and am the Academic Lead for Indigenous Education and Engagement with the School of Psychology.
My research and teaching is focussed on the areas of child and clinical psychology, with an emphasis on predictors of eating, activity, and body image outcomes in children and adults. Current research also focusses understanding some of the factors – including individual modifiable skills and features of parenting and the family system – that not only reduce psychological ill-health, but also promote positive mental health and wellbeing.
My clinical experience includes providing support to children and families who have a history of trauma, along with psychological and developmental assessment of children, working with families in remote settings, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families, and with children in pre-schools and schools.
