Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer in Applied Psychology at the University of Western Australia. I have worked as an academic for over 20 years, including positions at three universities. My research is in applied psychology with a particular focus on individual differences in academic integrity and leadership. I am an author of over 50 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; Plagiarism; Cheating; Ethical Behaviour; Social Cognition; Anxiety; Personality and Individual Differences

Teaching philosophy

I 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.
