Research Activities:

My research interests include social and emotion theories and interventions for addictive behaviours and mental health problems, and in the past five years, my research has focused on music psychology programs for enhancing emotion regulation, social connectedness, mental health, and cognitive health.

In the five years (2012-2017) I have been a sole or chief investigator on 12 grants worth a total of $1.17 Million, including an ARC Discovery and an ARC Linkage project. I have 79 scholarly publications, including a forthcoming book, 6 book chapters, 56 peer reviewed articles and 18 other publications such as Government and technical reports. At 3 October 2017, Google Scholar gives my publications a citation count of 1580, an H-index of 21, and an i10 index of 31. See representative publications below.
