About Me

About Me

I am currently a Senior Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Appleton Institute for Behavioural Sciences in Adelaide, Australia. My research interests include sleep, physical activity, exercise, sport, and worker health and safety.I have established a highly engaged industry-focused program of research. All of my research is conducted with clear, meaningful outcomes that are directly applicable to working populations. In particular, my research has resulted in industry-specific knowledge about how working arrangements can influence sleep and physical activity in the emergency services, health care, construction, law-enforcement and telecommunications sectors. Therefore, my work not only contributes to the generation of new knowledge and has tangible outcomes for end-users but also has real public health relevance for thousands of people.

I completed my Honours degree in Exercise Science and Physiology in 2010 at the University of Auckland, and a PhD at Deakin University in 2015. My PhD research explored the interplay between firefighters’ sleep, physical activity, and physical task performance during multi-day bushfire suppression. I have experience conducting both laboratory and longitudinal field studies, in collaboration with a variety of industry partners in fire and emergency services, telecommunications, and healthcare. Across my research career I have been trained at leading national and international institutions. These include three world-leading sleep laboratories (Sleep and Performance Research Centre, Washington State University; The Sleep and Circadian Medicine Laboratory, Monash University; Appleton Institute, CQUniversity) and the world’s best university (Academic Ranking of World Universities) for sports science (Deakin University).

Research Supervision Philosophy

I am a passionate teacher and strongly believe that important research is of little value if its lessons are not communicated. I have previously or currently supervise programs of research for 3 PhD, 8 honours, 5 summer scholarship students and 19 research assistants. Of my 7 completed honours students, all have been awarded first class honours. Three of my students (2 honours, 1 summer scholar) have received PhD scholarships and two students were accepted into highly competitive Clinical Masters Psychology programs. Students under my supervision have published scientific manuscripts (5), been awarded Summer Research scholarships (5), Finalist in the National 3-min Thesis Competition (1), Conference Travel Awards (2), and Commonwealth Scholarships (1).

My supervision philosophy is a student centred approach, with regular meetings and milestones. I supervise primarily with my colleagues, including, Professor Sally Ferguson, Dr Sarah Jay, Dr Michele Lastella, all world-class sleep experts. We have the ability to supervise students in Adelaide (where we are based) or by distance (elsewhere in Australia). If you are a student and have aspirations to do honours, masters, PhD or would like some research experience, please do not hesitate to get in contact to have a chat. We have a range of projects available, and can also work with you to develop new projects within our areas of expertise.
