Personal profile

Biography

I completed my MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada, and my internship at the University of Washington's Medical School in Seattle, USA.
I am a Clinical Psychologist in Australia.

2015-current: Consulting Editor for Stigma and Health (published by the American Psychological Association).

2017-current: Honorary Research Associate, Telethon Kids Institute

Teaching overview

I am a dedicated and passionate teacher who delivers a socially and professional relevant curriculum. I have been nominated for teaching and research supervision awards, and won the 'Postgraduate Coursework Choice Award' in my school in 2018.

I currently teach:

Introduction to Assessment and Treatment of Childhood Disorders (PSYC5674)

Advanced Issues in Clinical Psychology (PSYC5511)

Research

My research is the result of local, national, and international collaborations, and uses a mix of experimental, observational, administrative linked data, and qualitative methods. My publications show high academic impact (e.g., h-index of 20, >2400 citations), as well as social impact (e.g., high 'altmetric' scores, and in the media). My outputs have been incorporated into public health policy in Australia.

Broadly speaking, my research focuses on understanding when and how to best provide children with access to prevention and intervention (i.e., treatment) services for mental health problems. As they grow, children and youth face a range of emotional and social challenges. Psychologist and allied health professionals have developed a number of effective therapies to help them, but whether or not these are useful depends on the child or youth getting to services. Only a fraction of children in need get these services. Understanding why some children do – and do not – receive services for their child will help us to better engage children, youth, and families in therapy in the future.
