Career Summary

Biography

On completion of my PhD in 1987, I continued to extend my research on reading disabilities and in 1990 was successful in being granted a National Health and Medical Research Council Applied Health Fellowship during which time I conducted research investigating the effects of drugs on the cognitive processes involved in driving using psychophysiological techniques. Following the successful completion of this fellowship, I was successful in gaining a further fellowship during which time I extended my research in this area. In 1996 I was appointed to a Lecturer B position in the School of Psychology at the University of Tasmania and in 1998 I was granted continuing appointment to this position on the basis of outstanding performance. I was promoted to Lecturer C commencing in 2002 and in 2006 was granted accelerated progression to the top of the Lecturer C scale. In 2009, I was promoted to Lecturer D and in 2012 I accepted a position as a Lecturer D at the University of Newcastle. I currently teach in the areas of human neuroscience and cognition and memory. I have been involved in administration at the School, Faculty, and University level. I have been recognised for both my research and my teaching capabilities. My research is mainly concerned with word recognition, memory and attentional processes using cognitive psychophysiology methods. To date I have successfully supervised 69 honours theses, 16 PhD theses, one MSc thesis, and 19Master of Psychology theses. I have received over one million dollars in research funding, from grants schemes and from consultancies and have published four reports, one book, seven chapters in books, and 57 journal articles. I have achieved international recognition for my research including research in the area of teaching.

Research Expertise

Since completing my PhD in the area of visual processes in dyslexia, I have conducted research in two substantive areas of psychology. The first area involves extending the work of my PhD with research investigating word recognition and reading development particularly orthographic and phonological processes in reading development and word recognition. In particular we have looked both at the non-word reading ability of children and other measures of orthographic and phonological processing such as a phoneme and letter deletion task designed to investigate the relative use of phonological and orthographic strategies in these children. One result of this research has been the production of a test of non-word recoding (with Tasmanian norms) for use by teachers in schools. This test enables the early identification of children with phonological processing problems and thus steps towards remediation can be taken. This test and manual is now published (2001) and the fact that it is now being used by researchers from many different countries attests the international reputation of my work. The test and manual has now been republished with British norms in the United Kingdom. My second substantive area of research involves investigating the effect of alcohol and minor tranquillisers and dual tasks on cognitive processing (including memory and attentional processes) as indexed by event-related potentials and behavioural measures. In a series of experiments, this research investigated, in a task designed to measure the cognitive processes involved in driving, the effect of alcohol and minor tranquillisers both separately and combined on P300, a measure of resource allocation, and motor reaction time and accuracy. Further studies investigated the effects of lorazepam (a benzodiazepine with short-term amnesic properties) on the memory processing and event-related potentials of social drinkers who consume more than 200 gms of alcohol a week. In line with these two substantive areas of research, I have also conducted experiments investigating different exogenous and endogenous components of the event-related potential as they relate to both reading and resource allocation of cognitive processes. We have also investigated the N400, MMN, and late positive components of the ERP in various paradigms. In order to understand the component processes of word recognition and therefore reading, I am conducting experiments which, in an innovative design, converge cognitive psychophysiological (event-related potentials, in particular the component related to language processing: the N400) and behavioural measures (reaction time and accuracy. In addition to these substantive areas of research, I am currently conducting research in the area of emotion and the impact of attention on emotional processes.

Teaching Expertise
Over the course of my teaching career, I have taught generally in the areas of Cognitive Processes and Memory at all undergraduate levels. I have also taught in the area of human neuroscience including courses on psychopharmacology, sleep, neuroscience and psychophysiology. In addition, I have taught at the postgraduate level in courses concerning reading and also research methods. I have been involved in four teaching grants and have been on the reference group for three further teaching grants.

Administrative Expertise
I have been involved in administration and service at all levels of the University. As Psychology 1 practical coordinator, I have been responsible for curriculum development in Psychology 1 and have instituted practices designed to ensure that the Psychology 1 course is equivalent across the three campuses. As Psychology 4 (Honours) coordinator, I have been responsible for developing and reshaping the Psychology Honours course. As Research Higher Degrees Coordinator, I have overseen a rethinking of the way in which postgraduate degrees are viewed within the School. At the School level, I have also been involved in various committees, particularly the School executive, the body responsible for all budget, resources, and policy and planning for the School and Deputy Head of School. At the Faculty level, I have also been involved in the Faculty executive, the body responsible for policy and planning for the Faculty. At the University level, I have contributed to both research and teaching, being deputy chair of the University Ethics committee, chair of the Publication Entry System Audit Committee, and as a member of the Board of Graduate Studies. Since moving to the University of Newcastle in 2012, I am Deputy Head of School, Chair of the School Research Training Subcommittee and Fourth Year Research Coordinator. I am also a member of the Faculty Research and Research Training Committee.

Collaborations
My primary research collaborations are with Southern Cross University academics in the teaching field and The University of Queensland in the research field.

Students' understanding of the nature of science (NOS), and the degree to which they perceive their discipline to be part of science, are critical to their academic development in psychology. In Study 1, 650 first-year psychology students from three universities in Australia completed the Psychology as a Science (PAS) questionnaire, an adjective checklist relating to science and psychology, and the Science Knowledge and Attitudes (SKA) scale. Results confirmed the limited value of the PAS to identify components of the NOS, but indicated that students view psychology to be a science within a few weeks of the commencement of their study at university. Three factors underlying the SKA scale were identified: naïve view of science (NVS), social and cultural perspective (SCP), and knowledge of refutability (KR). In Study 2, 622 students at the University of Tasmania completed the SKA and items relating to their beliefs about studying. Scores on the three factors were correlated with beliefs about studying, scores on KR increased with years of study, and scores on NVS decreased with years of study. These data suggest that our educational practices do in fact lead to appropriate changes in students' NOS understanding in a manner consistent with the learning outcomes underpinning psychology graduate attributes.

This study investigated 10- to 12-year-old Australian children's text-messaging practices and their relationship to traditional spelling ability. Of the 227 children tested, 82% reported sending text-messages; a median of 5 per day. Use of predictive and multi-press entry methods was roughly equal. Children produced a wide range of text-message abbreviations (textisms) (M = 53%) when asked to rewrite a list of 30 conventionally-spelt words as they would in a text-message to a friend. The proportion of textisms produced was significantly positively correlated with general spelling ability, which fits with previous findings of positive relationships between children's textism use and literacy.

The aim of the present study was to investigate participation habits and prevalence of addiction among Australian university and school students to video-arcade games, computer games, and the Internet. A sample of 1,326 (657 female) students from rural and urban Tasmanian schools (Grades 7-12) and 705 (509 female) university students took part in the study. Lifetime participation and the frequency and duration of time that students spent online were higher than that reported in previous research on youth. A lower percentage of students met the modified criteria for addiction to video-arcade games (4.2%), computer games (5%) and the Internet (4.6%) compared to previous studies, but the prevalence of social computer game users (55.2%) and Internet addiction (58.9%) was higher than that reported by past researchers. © The Australian Psychological Society Ltd.

The aim of this study is to investigate factors, which promote the enjoyment of learning in high school students. The participants consisted of 331 grad 10-12 students, ranging in age from 16-18 from government and private high schools and colleges in the second semester of academic year 2007, obtained using the multi-stage random sampling technique. The research instrument used was a rating scale Questionnaire, with a-coefficient = 0.97. The data analysis employed descriptive statistics and CFA. The result of this study revealed that the weights of the nine factors involved in the promotion of enjoyment of learning ranged from 0.61 -0.90 at the 0.01 level of significance. The component weights were in the following order from the highest to the lowest weight: school management, instructional management, teacher's characteristics, students' support, student, living with others, community, family and friends with component weights of 0.90, 0.89, 0.87, 0.84, 0.78, 0.76, 0.68, 0.67 and 0.61, respectively. The most significant component was school management in term of importance. There was the goodness of fit index between the model and the empirical data with Chi-square (X2) of 2546.97, p = 0.66 at an degree of freedom (df) of 2578, GFT = 0.83, AGFI = 0.75, CFI = 1.00, SRMR = 0.061, SMSEA = 0.00 showing that the model had a construct validity. © Medwell Journals, 2009.

This paper outlines the background, process and outcomes for a project that delineated a set of graduate attributes of the 4-year Australian undergraduate psychology program. The nature of the current undergraduate psychology program and its quality assurance system is described, followed by a consideration of current issues in psychology education and training. The processes involved in delineating the six graduate attributes (i.e., knowledge and understanding, research methods, critical thinking, values, communication, and application) are then described. Some issues and suggestions related to their implementation are then outlined. Finally, the authors summarise what has been accomplished in delineating the graduate attributes, and what still needs to be achieved. © The Australian Psychological Society Ltd.

Previous research suggests a relationship between spatial attention and phonological decoding in developmental dyslexia. The aim of this study was to examine differences between good and poor phonological decoders in the allocation of spatial attention to global and local levels of hierarchical stimuli. A further aim was to investigate the relationship between global/local processing and electrophysiological indices (N1, N2) of spatial attention in these groups. Good (n = 18) and poor (n = 16) phonological decoders were selected on the basis of non-word reading ability. Participants responded to either the global or local level of hierarchical stimuli presented in the left or right visual field in a sustained attention task. Poor phonological decoders showed slower RT relative to good phonological decoders regardless of whether attention was directed to either global or local processing levels. This was accompanied by a lack of task-related modulation of the posterior N1 and N2 Event-Related Potential (ERP) components, suggesting differences in the early allocation of spatial attention and later perceptual processing respectively. Poor decoders also showed greater N2 amplitude overall, suggestive of compensatory processing at later perceptual stages. There was preliminary evidence for sex differences in hemispheric lateralisation, with a reversal of hemispheric lateralisation observed among male and female poor phonological decoders. These findings have important implications for the understanding of the relationship between spatial attention and phonological decoding in developmental dyslexia. Crown Copyright © 2009.

The effect that motivationally relevant stimuli have on processes of attentional engagement and disengagement was investigated during two modified peripheral cueing paradigms. Sexual, mutilation, threatening, and neutral stimuli served as peripheral cues in both experiments. Responses were made to target location in Experiment 1 (N = 19 female) and target identity in Experiment 2 (N = 18 female). As indexed by enhanced target-evoked P1 and P3b component amplitudes, target processing was facilitated by the presentation of sexual and mutilation stimuli in both experiments. This facilitation in response to targets cued by sexual and mutilation stimuli occurred regardless of whether cueing was valid or invalid as demonstrated by the non-significant cue validity × picture-type interaction. As such, the processes of attentional engagement (as inferred by responses to validly cued targets) and attentional disengagement (as inferred by responses to invalidly cued targets) were not differentially affected by the motivational relevance of the preceding cue. These results indicate that in a non-clinical sample, participants can shift attention rapidly to process information following the onset of motivationally relevant stimuli at attended (valid) and unattended (invalid) locations and that target processing is facilitated by the presence of appetitive and aversive cues. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.

Contemporary steganographic systems encode hidden messages inside the least significant bit layers of colour natural images. The presence of these messages is difficult to detect through statistical attacks. This study examined whether humans could detect steganography in natural images using a controlled 2AFC discrimination task. While d'>1 was observed for colour layers 3-8, Layer 1 had a negative d'. Thus, Layer I embedding is highly resistant to visual attack, since observers were more likely to indicate the presence of steganography in the control image than the embedded image. © 2005 IEEE.

The aim of the current investigation was to examine the barriers encountered by Tasmanian registered nurses when attempting to provide optimal pain management. The impact of nurse satisfaction with their professional relationship with physicians during pain management on the types of barriers encountered was also examined. A total of 1,015 registered nurses completed a 21-item survey that examined the types of barriers encountered during pain management. In addition, data were gathered on nurses' satisfaction with their professional relationship with physicians during pain management. More than one-third of the respondents indicated that they had encountered at least one type of barrier to providing optimal pain relief, including insufficient cooperation by physicians and inadequate prescriptions of analgesic medications. Nurses who did not feel adequately consulted by physicians were significantly more likely to encounter barriers such as insufficient cooperation by patient's physicians and inadequate prescription of analgesic medications. The barriers to effective pain management encountered by nurses were affected by their relationship with physicians. Education, for both nurses and physicians, concerning the role of the nurse in the workplace will help to ensure that nurses encounter fewer barriers during pain management. Optimal pain management practice will result if guidelines for dealing effectively with barriers are tailored to the specific type of institution and the unit within those institutions. © 2003 by the American Society of Pain Management Nurses.

The present research investigated the separate and interactive effects of the minor tranquilliser, temazepam, and a low dose of alcohol on the amplitude and latency of P300 and on reaction time. Twenty-four participants completed four drug treatments in a repeated measures design. The four drug treatments, organised as a fully repeated 2×2 design, included a placebo condition, an alcohol only condition, a temazepam only condition, and an alcohol and temazepam combined condition. Event-related potentials were recorded from midline sites Fz, Cz, and Pz within an oddball paradigm. The results indicated that temazepam, with or without the presence of alcohol, reduced P300 amplitude. Alcohol, on the other hand, with or without the presence of temazepam, affected processing speed and stimulus evaluation as indexed by reaction time and P300 latency. At the low dose levels used in this experiment alcohol and temazepam appear not to interact, which suggests that they affect different aspects of processing in the central nervous system. © 2003 Elsevier Inc.

Temporal contrast sensitivity for counterphase flicker was determined for specifically disabled and normal readers to investigate whether the two groups differ in the functioning of their transient systems. In experiment 1, temporal contrast sensitivity was measured over a range of temporal frequencies with a spatial frequency of 2 cycles deg-1. Disabled readers were less sensitive than the control subjects at all temporal frequencies. In experiment 2, temporal contrast sensitivity was measured at a temporal frequency of 20 Hz over a range of spatial frequencies. Disabled readers were less sensitive than the controls at all spatial frequencies, with the differences between the groups increasing as spatial frequency increased. Both these findings are interpreted as supporting the hypothesis of a transient-system deficit in the visual systems of disabled readers.
