I am a Professor at Curtin University, Co-Lead of the Mental Health Research Domain within the Curtin enAble Institute, and an NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow (National Health and Medical Research Council).  

My research interests span health, developmental, and clinical psychology, with the overarching aim of understanding how both individual difference, as well as social and community-related variables, are related to psychological, social, educational, and health-related outcomes across the life-span. I am particularly interested in individual differences in cognitive and self-regulatory processes (such as appraisal, coping, and emotion regulation) and their potential links with emotional vulnerability.


I am an Academic Editor at PeerJ and an Editorial Board Member at Dyslexia and Vulnerable Children and Youth Studies.

I am currently conducting research in three broad areas:

1) Mental health and well-being among children with language and literacy difficulties

2) Emotional experience, emotion regulation, and non-suicidal self-injury

3) Psychosocial impacts of HIV/AIDS


Please contact me if you would be interested in conducting PhD research in any areas that overlap with my interests.
