I am currently completing a combined PhD/Master of Psychology (Health) program under the supervision of Dr Clemence Due, Dr Melissa Oxlad and Associate Professor Philippa Middleton. With a background in both psychology and public health, I am broadly interested in research and practice relating to grief and loss, and family wellbeing including child and perinatal mental health. My PhD is exploring the psychological impact of pregnancy loss and neonatal loss for under-researched populations in Australia, with a particular focus on improving our understanding of men's grief and subsequent support needs.
