Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

My research and experience span various fields – psychology, economics, natural resource management – all united by a central focus on interdisciplinary approaches to address complex societal challenges.

Currently I am involved in research investigating:
• the impacts of climate change on the health and wellbeing of marginalised communities;
• pedagogies and practice for embedding the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in mental health educational programs for the mental health workforce; and
• wellbeing and the performing arts

My doctoral research examined the intersections of social identity within the context of leadership for which I received a Dean’s Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence award. I specialise on research and the evidence-based practice of the social psychology of leadership, social justice, and wellbeing, with an emphasis on cross-cultural perspectives, collaborating closely with communities for effective practical outcomes.

I also have interest and expertise in behavioural economics, combining principles of economics, psychology, and behavioural science to understand how and why people behave the way they do and to apply these behavioural and sociological insights to policy and design.
