Personal profile

Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in Applied Psychology at the University of Western Australia. I have worked as an academic for nearly 20 years, including positions at three universities. I have eclectic research interests and I have conducted research in many areas of psychology, including industrial/organisational psychology, social psychology, cognition, individual differences, emotion, and cross-cultural psychology; I also undertake research in educational assessment and academic integrity. I am an author of over 30 peer-reviewed journal articles. I have taught at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, where my current focus is on applied psychology, particularly in the business and I/O contexts.

Research interests

Leadership; Academic Integrity; Social Cognition; Anxiety; Personality and Individual Differences

Teaching philosophy

I like to apply the scientist-practitioner model of psychology to the teaching of psychology. In other words, I take an evidence-based practice approach to teaching by using teaching approaches supported by research into effective education.
