Personal profile


I am an Early Career Researcher currently working on research and its media delivery on effective suicide prevention approaches for Indigenous peoples at the Centre of Best Practice in Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention (Bilya Marlee School of Indigenous Studies). At the School of Psychological Science, I work in both the Human Factors and Applied Cognition lab investigating multitasking and mental workload and the LIDL (Life, Individual Development, and Learning) lab investigating cerebral lateralisation and its relations to language processing and academic achievements using behavioural psychophysics and neuroimaging techniques such as functional transcranial Doppler ultrasound.
