Overview

I am an organisational psychologist and Senior Lecturer at UQ's School of Psychology. I research, teach, and consult on a broad range of work and organisational topics. In particular, my research focuses on how to manage stress and improve performance. Through my research, I aim to help organisations and their employees devise new strategies to work healthier while still being productive. My consulting and advisory work has included tackling issues with selection and recruitment, training and development, career management, work design, change management, and operational safety.​​ I have expertise in the conduct of research in a range of high performance settings (e.g., small business owners, professional musicians, elite athletes, and safety critical work in healthcare and transport industries). I serve on the Editorial Boards for the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology and the European Journal of Work and Organisational Psychology.

I completed my PhD in 2012 and joined the UQ School of Psychology in 2013, following a postdoctoral research position at QUT School of Management. Some of my more specific research topics include, but are not limited to: the moment-to-moment physiological impact of work stress (i.e., on cortisol levels, heart rate variability); how employees manage their energy during the work day; how employees recover from work stress in off-the-job time; how jobs and careers can be designed to maximise well-being, motivation, and performance; and I also explore the 'hidden costs' of performance-based pay and compensation systems.
