Researcher biography

I graduated with a combined PhD/Master's in organisational psychology. My research and applied work span across topics such as leadership destabilisation, leader transgressions, and social dynamics within organisations. In 2021, I was awarded a Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowship to investigate the social psychological underpinnings of high-reliability organisations - elite groups that operate in high-risk, high-pressure conditions (e.g., Formula 1 racing teams, frontline mining operations, emergency services, and air force squadrons).

I am also an AHPRA-registered psychologist who coordinates placements for the award-winning Work and Research in Applied Psychology (WRAP) program here at UQ. This program offers psychology honours students work-integrated learning experiences whilst contributing to industry growth and community needs.

Occasionally, I enjoy writing articles that apply research and theory to real-world events with the aim of enabling research to reach wider audiences.
