Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.

I am a Lecturer in the School of Psychology at the University of Adelaide. I am currently developing course materials and teaching into the Online Graduate Diploma in Psychology. I also work collaboratively with researchers in the Department of Public Health and Caring Sciences at Uppsala University in Sweden, where I held a postdoctoral appointment from 2017-2019. My current research is in the area of life course epidemiology, specifically concerning mental health, health behaviours, heart disease and socioeconomic differences in health.

I graduated from the combined PhD/MPsych (Health) program in 2017. My PhD was supervised by Professor Helen Winefield, A/Professor Charli Sargent, and Dr Amanda Hutchinson. My PhD thesis considered psychosocial work factors and their association with measures of overweight and obesity, as well as energy balance-related behaviours (e.g. diet and physical activity).

Health Psychology: obesity, energy balance-related behaviours, diet, physical activity, stress, telomeres, sleep, psycho-cardiology.
