I completed my undergraduate and postgraduate training in social psychology at the Australian National University. I was a Research Associate at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security (ANU) before moving to Murdoch University in 2010 to take up a teaching and research position in the School of Psychology. I was an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Awardee between 2012-2015. In May 2017 I moved to Flinders University to take up a position as Associate Professor in the School of Psychology. I am an Associate Editor at the British Journal of Social Psychology.
