Rebecca Napier is currently undertaking research in the area of the career development of gifted adolescent girls. This research aims to increase knowledge about the career-related influences, barriers, and supports experienced by these students. It is expected that this knowledge will be used to promote improved workforce engagement, transition experiences, post-schooling outcomes, and wellbeing outcomes for gifted females. This research will be submitted by Rebecca to be considered for a PhD qualification with Flinders University (thesis title: 'An investigation of the career development experiences of gifted adolescent girls enrolled in selective entry gifted education high school programs in South Australia').

Rebecca's interests in well-being and achievement for gifted individuals are key driving forces in her roles as an Extended Learning Coach in the private schooling sector, researcher, and contract academic teacher.
