Dr Jonathan Bartholomaeus


School of Psychology

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

I am a lecturer in the School of Psychology at the University of Adelaide. Having recently completed my PhD on the association between the belief in a just world and adaptive psychological functioning, I am now developing materials and coordinating courses for the online Graduate Diploma of Psychology Advanced. My research interests include the belief in a just world, Primal world beliefs more broadly, and any and all analyses centering around latent variable structural equation modelling.
