My name is Jessica O’Rielly and I am a third year P.h.D. / Masters of Psychology (Organisational and Human factors) student at The University of Adelaide and provisionally registered psychologist. I completed my undergraduate at Adelaide with a major in psychology and a minor in Indonesian language and culture.
I enjoy tutoring within the school of Psychology and facilitating the engagement and learning of undergraduate students. I have participated in a number of school engagement projects such as the future studies expo and the Florey Post Graduate Conference.
I am interested in applying the skills and knowledge I have developed through research and study within the broad domain of psychology within an industrial/ organisational domain. I have particular interest in using research to inform policy and practice within the workforce. I am interested to learn new skills and gain contacts within the industry to further develop my education and expertise.
I spend some of my spare time participating in community engagement projects around my local area. Most recently my work with the Playford Alive, SA Police and Communities Together (P.A.C.T) and OPAL. This involved facilitating a youth intervention programs within a high risk, low socioeconomic population area. As a testament to the beneficial work in this area I was awarded the 2014 Young Australian of the Year Award.
I am actively seeking placement opportunity within the organisational psychology and human factors field as part of my studies.
