Psychology

Description

My research has broadly focused on positive psychology and behaviour change, and the use of interactive technologies to promote health and wellbeing.

I am currently both tutoring in psychology and contributing to research at the University of Adelaide focussed on developing a mental health and wellbeing framework for young adult fire and emergency service volunteers, and a psychoeducational toolkit to support positive mental health and wellbeing in these first responder populations.

My doctoral research was focussed on developing a theoretical framework to guide interactive digital media design to promote positive health behaviour change. My research involved a multidisciplinary mixed methods approach integrating psychology theory with game design practice through practice-led research and research-led practice.

I aim to bring my qualifications, skills and passion for health and digital tech together through research, teaching, and knowledge translation, in order to inform innovative and ethical digital health promotion initiatives, so I can help people overcome barriers and thrive through positive change.
