Career Summary


I am a psychology PhD candidate based at the Ourimbah campus of the University of Newcastle (UON). I research the effects of perceptual differences between people of differing heights, behavioural differences between people of different hormonal profiles, and the social communicative outcomes of these differences. I use virtual reality environments, head tracking hardware, hormone analyses, and physical measurements as part of my research methodology.

I have also held many teaching roles at UON, including Social Psychology, Personality Psychology, Biological Psychology, Introductory Psychology, Professional Psychology, Statistics for the Sciences, Statistics for Business, and personal tutoring through the Wollotuka Institute.
