Deputy Director (Research), Parenting and Family Support Centre, The University of Queensland

My research focuses on behavioural family intervention as a means for promoting positive family relationships, and the prevention and early intervention for young children at risk of developing behavioural and emotional problems. In particular, I am interested in improving the health and overall wellbeing of children (e.g., children with mealtime difficulties, children suffering a chronic illness), parents at the transition to parenthood as well as engagement of parents, particularly those from diverse backgrounds.
