I am a Lecturer in the School of Psychology at the University of Adelaide. I am currently teaching into the Online Graduate Diploma in Psychology. I also work as a researcher at the Borderline Personality Disorder Collaborative. My research interests lie in the area of life body image/eating disorders and how they interact with sexual orientation, and personality disorders.

My PhD thesis considered the complex relationship of body image and sexual orientation, with the focus on lesbian women. This PhD was undertaken from the University of South Australia, and was supervised by Professor David Gleaves, A/Professor Amanda Hutchinson, A/Professor Phil Kavanagh, and A/Professor Elizabeth Reiger .
