I am a Research Associate for the Flinders University Institute for Mental Health and Wellbeing. My role is specifically focused on Co-Design research, involving consumers and people with lived experience in the entire research process. I am also a senior clinical psychologist employed by the Statewide Eating Disorder Service where I work with young people (15-18yo) and their families. I am passionate about giving power back to those with lived and living experience of mental health concerns. My research is focused on clinical and health psychology, with a particular interest in body image and eating disorders.
My PhD (completed) focused on the effectiveness of Ten-Session Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT-T) for eating disorders and predictive role of body image, supervised by Professor Tracey Wade, Professor Glenn Waller, and Professor Marika Tiggemann. I have published my PhD research in several high quality peer-reviewed journals and spoken at domestic and international conferences.
