I am currently completing a combined PhD/Master of Psychology (Health) program under the supervision of Dr Clemence Due, Dr Melissa Oxlad and Professor Philippa Middleton. Broadly, I am interested in research and practice relating to the health and wellbeing of children, young people and families, and have a background in both psychology and public health. My PhD is exploring the psychological impact of pregnancy loss for under-researched populations in Australia, with a particular focus on improving our understandings of men's grief and subsequent support needs.
