I commenced at the Division of Psychology of the University of Tasmania as a Lecturer in 2013. Previously, I have worked as a Lecturer and undergraduate Degree Coordinator at Australian Catholic University, and as a sessional academic at the University of Southern Queensland and Queensland University of Technology.
My primary research interests are broadly within the fields of assessment, emotion, and cognition. In terms of psychological assessment, I am interested in faking and malingering in psychological testing, as well as scale development and validation. I also conduct a program of research investigating the "dark" elements of individual differences, such as emotional manipulation and psychopathy, and cognitive processing as it relates to these darker aspects (for example, semantic and affective priming). Recently, I have also commenced a research program exploring the psychological processes involved in online social networking.
