My professional training is in developmental psychology and research. I completed my PhD through the Departments of Psychology and Paediatrics at the University of Melbourne on the topic of attachment and wellbeing among foster care children. Prior to that I completed a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree and a Master of Arts (Research) degree, also from the University of Melbourne. I have had extensive professional experience in the government, not-for-profit and university sectors.
