I am a registered psychologist and Research Fellow at the Queensland University of Technology and at the University of Queensland.
My research centres around improving the development, health and wellbeing of children, and mitigating the impact of early adversity. I use a prevention lens to target risk and protective factors to enhance child and family well-being. My work also considers the economic context in which families raise children and examines structural barriers to positive development and health.
My early research revolved around the development and evaluation of Behavioural Family Interventions, with a focus on digital applications and increasing program reach for priority populations. More recently my research has specifically focussed on improving outcomes for families experiencing food insecurity.
