Senior Lecturer in Psychology
College of Education, Psychology and Social Work
My academic history largely stems from an early interest in education that translated into a life-long passion for learning and teaching. My PhD explored how we best integrate information in a collaborative search context. More recently, I am interested in supporting student success in higher education and the role sensory processing sensitivity plays in student success.

I primarily teach in first year psychology and focus my work on supporting student success across the univeristy experience. My approach aims to successfully transition students into and across univeristy such that they leave with a confidence and security knowing they are equipped with the skills and experiences to be competitive in their career postgraduation.
Much of my work explores the role that sensory processing sensitivity (colloquially termed the 'highly sensitive person') plays in student success. I have developed empirically validated resources educating teachers and parents on how to best understand and support highly sensitive children in and out of classroom experiences.
