Higher Degree by Research Candidate
School of Psychology
Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
I am a candidate in the combined Doctor of Philosophy/Master of Psychology (Organisational & Human Factors), supervised by Professor Paul Delfabbro and Dr Daniel King. My research is in the area of workplace design with a focus on the social and psychological adaptation to open-plan workplace designs.
I am interested in how people deal with and adapt to changing work circumstances and environments. In-particular, why some workers in open-plan work environments score highly on general outcome measures (i.e., productivity, job satisfaction, collaboration and psychological distress) while others do not. I am interested in finding strategies that can be implemented at both an individual and organisational level to help people adapt to, and perform well in their new work environments.
