Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Public Health at the University of Adelaide, and the Associate Dean (Gender, Equity & Diversity) for the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

Since completing my PhD in Psychology in 2006, I have worked in academic and research roles in the School of Psychology, School of Medicine (Discipline of Psychiatry), and, since 2012, the School of Public Health.

My research interests are primarily in the area of qualitative and critical health psychology. In particular, I have a strong interest in issues related to: risk (especially cancer risk), health promotion, and public understandings of science. I am also particularly interested in gendered health issues and gender equity more broadly.
