Personal profile

Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer of Marketing in the UWA Business School and Deputy Director of the UWA Centre for Human and Cultural Values. I was awarded my PhD at UWA in 2009. My doctoral research examined the factors influencing the adoption and implementation of new technologies in the Australian wool industry.

I have considerable experience in research, teaching and industry engagement. My research interests and expertise are in the area of human values. I am particularly interested in the measurement of human values in adults and children and how values influence consumer and pro-social behaviour in a range of contexts. My research has been published in over 20 international journals including Assessment, Personality and Individual Differences, Annals of Tourism Research and Psychology & Marketing.

I co-ordinate and teach Marketing Principles in the UWA MBA program and have developed and delivered this unit for the full-time, flexi and online programs. I have worked with a wide range of scientific research on innovation and research management issues and assist a number of non-profit organisations with the development of effective fundraising strategies.

Research

My research focus is the measurement of human values and how values relate to behaviour in adults and children. My work on the measurement of values has focused on the development of instruments that measure a more refined set of values in both adults and children. I am a co-developer of the Best-Worst refined values instrument (BWVr) for adults and the Animated Values Instrument (AVI and AVIr) for children. My contribution to the development of these instruments included the introduction of a new Animal Welfare value. This value is defined as the empathic concern for the welfare of all animals. My work on associations between values and behaviour focuses on consumer and prosocial behaviour in adults and social behaviours (prosocial and aggressive) in children. My main research areas are as follows:

  • Personal values and value-expressive behaviour (including prosocial behaviour in adults and social behaviours in children)
  • Giving and volunteering
  • Transformative consumer behaviour
