Supervision Statement

  • I am keen to supervise doctoral students who have an interest in health and mental health topics. My particular areas of interest are in understanding trauma and grief responses and supports, and how resilience can be promoted at individual and structural levels. Current areas of research and supervision include:
    - post-disaster recovery, including posttraumatic growth experiences
    - health related projects, both hospital and community based.

    At the moment, I am unable to take on new students due to my current supervision load.
