Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


I have recently completed my PhD at the University of Adelaide’s School of Public Health, where I investigated the social experience of cutting back or stopping alcohol consumption. My background is in psychology, with a particular interest in promoting behaviour change. I previously worked to design and manage travel behaviour change programs to encourage people to decrease their car use and take up alternative transport such as cycling, walking and taking public transport.
