My research
I conduct research with my colleagues at Victoria University in Melbourne and at the Black Dog Institute in Sydney. My research focuses on (1) how neurocognitive processes contribute to mental illness and (2) new models of delivering mental health treatments in the community.

My current randomised controlled trial will evaluate a world-first self-guided online cognitive behaviour therapy program designed especially for people with intellectual disability. This research is generously funded by Australian Rotary Health and the Australian Foundation for Mental Health Research (AFFIRM).

The Rubber Brain

My friends and I at UNSW wrote The Rubber Brain to help young learners develop resilience, think flexibly, enhance relationships and get to know themselves better - all crucial for success in study, work and life! We each come from a different area of psychology , so our book covers a wide range of evidence-based approaches to optimising young minds. If you are a young person (or know one) who is struggling with self-management, decision-making, negative thinking or other mental road blocks, read this book.

You can buy The Rubber Brain from Booktopia here.


The Fridge

The Fridge was designed as a self-help resources of young learners - especially undergraduate university students - to navigate common problems like goal-setting, motivation, time management and general wellbeing. The goal for the Fridge is for young people to improve their self-management - that is, their ability to work effectively towards meaningful life goals and be flexible in the face of setbacks. On The Fridge, students can complete brief modules on areas of interest, watch helpful videos, and download resources for planning their studies.

You can visit The Fridge here.
