Personal profile


I am an interdisciplinary social science researcher whose work lies across the fields of psychology, political science and marketing, with a particular emphasis on the application of advanced and novel quantitative methods. My research interests centre on understanding human values and personality, including their nature, structure and relations with social, political and consumer behaviours. I have been published in journals such as Personality and Individual Differences and the Australian Journal of Political Science.

Current projects

I am currently working on MandEval, a large-scale, interdisciplinary research project to explore the impact of government COVID-19 vaccine mandates. My research will explore relations between policy interventions and public attitudes and behaviours across countries, with a focus on the quantitative analysis of individual differences.
