Senior Lecturer - School of Psychology - Curtin University

I am a senior lecturer in the School of Psychology at Curtin University and a practicing psychologist. My research explores the construction of marginalised identities and experiences, with a particular focus on gender, critical disability studies, and decoloniality. Through my teaching and research supervision, I aim to co-create spaces of transformative learning and critical reflexivity that interrogate the traditional roles of academic, student, and the academy. Currently, I coordinate undergraduate units in qualitative research methods and psychological assessment and supervise HDR and undergraduate research students in topics relating to women’s experiences in STEMM, the role of safety and discomfort in the classroom, and the construction of intellectual disability through dominant cultural narratives.
