Personal profile

Biography

I am a lecturer, researcher and educational & developmental psychologist. I work collaboratively with health care professionals, teachers, parents and young people to support the individual and unique needs of youth. My research interests lie in engaging with the young person's perspective and experience across psychology and education. As a psychologist I have worked in schools, hospitals and in private practice in various supporting roles with young people and their families. Alongside clinical practice I lecture in inclusion and psychology and supervise research students within this area. Underlying my research interest is my passion for supporting the needs of all students in the best ways possible while maintaining their wellbeing and sense of belonging. My doctoral research examined interventions for children of parents with a mental illness which received the Lewis & Lewis Educational & Developmental Psychology Postgraduate Research Award.

Currently, I am collaborating in two international research groups. One group aims to develop an international scale of recovery and mental health knowledge for children of parents with a mental illness with colleagues based in the USA, Netherlands and in Australia, and the second I am the group co-leader of the Parental and Family Mental Health Worldwide Network Communications Group focused on translating and disseminating research knowledge specific to families living with parental mental illness.

In 2017, I was awarded the Deans Early Career Researcher Award to develop, build and pilot an artificial intelligence technology application (known as a Chatbot) to support the wellbeing of high school students. My research interests have lead me to find ways to bridge education, psychology and technology to support the needs of all youth in schools and the community; including those with diverse and high needs. Most recently, I was selected to participate in The Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft 5 day Ideas Lab on the Mental Health of Children and Adolescents in Vienna, Austria. Thirty six researchers were selected from around the world and across disciplines to work together to create next generation approaches to youth mental health. Currently, I am the Offshore Education Coordinator for Faculty of Education Monash programs offered in Singapore and Hong Kong.

I am a member of the Australian Psychological Society (MAPS), an International Affiliate Member of the American Psychological Association (APA) and a previous member of the Golden Key International Honor Society.
