Individual work performance rests at the epicentre of my research interests. Work performance is an essential concept for understanding the contributions individuals make to organisational success and has been a central topic for both scholars and practitioners for over a century. My interest in this topic can be divided into three complementary parts. First, I am interesting in the dimensionality of individual work performance. That is, what are the different types of behaviours individuals enact in the workplace that contribute to the achievement of individual, team, and organisational goals. In answering this question I lend on a broad range of literatures including task performance, in- and extra-role performance, organisational citizenship behaviour, adaptive performance, and proactive performance. Second, I seek to understand the unique antecedents of different forms of performance. This research stream is defined by the question, “what are the common and unique antecedents of different forms of performance?” Third, I look to the consequences of performance for the individual, group, and broader organisation. This stream is defined by the question, “what are the common and unique consequences of individual performance?” My research informs performance management, work design, and training practices. My research is innovative as it takes a holistic approach to the study of individual work performance and lends on a combination of laboratory and field studies.

Since 2015, I have given 12 invited oral presentations at medical conferences and published two practitioner articles. In addition, I have delivered over 15 presentations and workshops at local hospitals including Fiona Stanley Hospital, King Edward Memorial Hospital, and Princess Margaret Hospital. My work has been featured on the UWA Research Impact webpage, the UWA News webpage, and the UWA Biz Blog. My research was also highlighted in an article published in Surgical News, the official publication of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. I also co-chaired a policy group at Fiona Stanley Hospital (2015 – 2017) which introduced surgical briefings as a standard practice across the new hospital based on findings from my PhD research. Finally, I have delivered three industry reports to partner organisations.
I believe learning is an active and enriching process that should transcend the classroom and support students in connecting course material to real world applications and experiences. My students are the reason why I am in the classroom, and their personal development and success are my primary concern.
