I am a Black Puppy Postdoctoral Research Fellow and psychologist at the Black Dog Institute, University of New South Wales. I completed the combined PhD/Clinical Psychology Master’s degree at the same university in 2019. I am currently investigating the implementation of evidence-based e-health technology to prevent anxiety and depression in young people. My work aims to understand and improve the implementation of these technologies at scale within the school environment. Identifying the factors that influence implementation will help to improve the reach, uptake, and effectiveness of psychological interventions in schools, and therefore improve outcomes for young people. 

Beyond youth prevention research, I have a research background in anger, aggression, and self-control. I am also passionate about understanding the common mechanisms that drive mental health problems across the lifespan and conducting treatment evaluations.

I am skilled in quantitative research and data analysis. I am developing my skills in qualitative methods. I have experience teaching at the university level and am interested in pursuing lecturing opportunities.
