I am an Assistant Professor/Lecturer and Australian Research Council DECRA Fellow based at the University of Melbourne, Australia. I am also a Global Scholar alumna with the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research . My research focuses on social functioning in three main domains: identity processes, emotion regulation, and human agency.
I completed my PhD at the University of Queensland before taking up a position as Global Scholar with the CIFAR Global Fellow Academy. The Academy brings together elite early career researchers in all areas of science to build research and leadership capacity in young scholars. I worked as a postdoctoral fellow with Professor Alex Haslam at the University of Queensland before beginning my DECRA fellowship in 2016. In 2017 I took up a position as Assistant Professor/Lecturer at the University of Melbourne.
