Personal profile

Research interests

I am a research-focused Senior Lecturer within the Faculty of Health at CDU (Casuarina Campus), based in the Greater Darwin region of the Northern Territory. I would like to acknowledge that I live and work on the traditional lands of the Larrakia people, and pay my respect to elders both past and present.

Put simply, my research helps us understand the reasons why people do or not do things that are good or bad for them. I apply a range of psychological theories related to social cognition, motivation, and volition to explain health behaviour, that can inform the design and evaluation of health behaviour change interventions to improve health and wellbeing.

My primary focus is on understanding alcohol and other drug use and behavioural addictions, including alcohol, nicotine (e.g., tobacco, e-cigarettes), and gambling behaviour.

I have a keen interest in the integration of social psychology with other fields, and welcome invitations for collaboration on multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary research projects.
