Researcher biography

I am a Lecturer of Organisational Psychology, based in the School of Psychology. I am a specality researcher in the fields of workplace bullying and harassment, psychosocial risk assessment, and bystander behaviour in organisational settings. I completed my Bachelor of Psychology (Honours, First Class) in 2013, and my PhD in 2019, at the Centre for Workplace Excellence, University of South Australia. I also hold a Graduate Certificate in Teriatry Teaching from Curtin University.

As part of a small research team, I have generated Category 2 and 3 research funding as a Chief and Co-Investigator through work with partners such as SafeWork SA, SafeWork NSW, WorkSafe Victoria, and the Department of Justice (Custodial Corrections) NSW, and the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (SA Branch).

I am committed to establishing and maintaining active research networks, and furthering the collective knowledge of the field of Psychology, through active and sustained representation of my research collective. Since 2014, I have regularly reviewed for top-tiered international journals (e.g., Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, International Journal of Stress Management), and a number of national and international conferences. I currently serve as the Executive Officer for the Asia Pacific Academy for Psychosocial Factors at Work – a multidisciplinary forum that brings together academics, practitioners and policy makers from the Asia Pacific region and beyond, and contribute to better working arrangements in the region.
