Career Summary

Biography

I was awarded my PhD in social and organisational psychology in the School of Psychology in early 2020. My thesis explored political solidarity and leadership processes in the context of gender equality, examining how leader gender shapes the capacity of male and female leaders to mobilise men and women for gender equality as a common cause.

I am currently working on several projects in the student equity space. These include: a longitudinal study investigating the impact that increasing stereotyping during acute economic/social pressures might have on disadvantaged students’ aspirations for higher education; a HEPPP-funded project investigating low-SES student perceptions of success at university; and a NCSEHE-funded project exploring the impact of housing on regional and remote students’ participation in higher education.

Teaching

Code Course Role Duration
PSYC6050 Foundations of Applied Psychology 2
School of Psychology, Faculty of Science & IT, University of Newcastle
Applied psychology is concerned with predicting people’s behaviours and attitudes in a variety of life and work settings. This knowledge informs ways to improve wellbeing, effectiveness, and productivity of individuals, groups, and organisations. The course will examine the research methods used in psychology to study and measure variables that influence our attitudes and behaviours, how tests and surveys are used and interpreted, and what makes a good psychological instrument. This course will also provide instruction in report writing and look at methods of evaluating the effectiveness of programs, as well as an overview of the key areas of applied Psychology for students with no prior background in the discipline.

In this course students develop a comparative understanding of social science methods for the design of social inquiry. This course concentrates on the collection and analysis of quantitative data and the reporting of results. Students develop an understanding of the uses, strengths and limitations of various research strategies and approaches to conducting social inquiry, and develop skills necessary for designing social survey research tools, data processing and analysis, the interpretation of numerical data and report writing. The computer workshops will include an introduction to appropriate software packages such as SPSS. The course does not require previous statistical knowledge.
