Lisette obtained her PhD from Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands in January 2004 for her research focused on near misses and minor incidents, investigating the recovery steps taken in these events that kept them from developing into more severe accidents. She also holds an MSc in Industrial Safety Management from the University of Central Missouri (1995) and an MSc in Industrial Engineering and Management Science from Eindhoven University of Technology (1994).
Lisette’s main area of expertise is human performance management, specialising in human and organisational factors that influence people’s work practices and performance in regard to productivity, reliability, safety, and health. She has worked in research, training and consultancy in a variety of industrial settings across Europe and Australia, including chemical industry, oil and gas, mining, rail transport, and hospital settings.
Currently, as a lecturer at UWA, Lisette teaches into the Master of Industrial and Organisational Psychology program and the Master of  (and Graduate Certificate in) Business Psychology programs in the School of Psychological Science, and the Work Health and Safety programs of the School of Human Sciences. She is also the course coordinator for the Master of Business Psychology and online Graduate Certificate in Business Psychology programs.
