Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Australian Catholic University

Finding the truth is hard. We’re all prone to biases and can only spend so much time learning about the world. How can we learn the truth in the most efficient way, and use it to make the world a better place?

Michael aims to solve this problem. He uses his expertise in data science and systematic reviews to find the truth about what works best. He uses this knowledge to change behaviour in health, education, sport, and the broader community.

He has received five awards for outstanding teaching and has an emerging track record of publishing high-quality research.

He has also used this background to have an impact in the community, from coaches and players in the NRL and AFL, and to leading executives from the wealth and financial services industries. He hopes to help people change their own behaviour—and the behaviour of others—to live more effective, inspiring, and high-performing lives.
