Head of School of Psychology and Speech Pathology, Curtin University

I am interested in the social and applied psychology of music. My research concerns music and well-being in specific population (e.g., suicidality among rock fans) and the general population (e.g., use of digital music in everyday life to improve mood); the impact of music on consumer behaviour (e.g., purchasing, advertising etc.); and theories of musical preference and taste.
