Synopsis:

I am interested in research that focuses on the developmental outcomes of children and adolescents and the influence that working with families and schools can have on these outcomes. I am also interested exploring the interplay between these contexts.

I am currently working as a Research Fellow on the Mental Health of Young People with Developmental Disabilities (MHYPEDD) project, a population level rollout of free parenting programs to parents of children with disabilities. I am an investigator on the DET HOrizon Project: Principal Leadership for Parent Engagement. I am also invloved in a Triple P project that aims to identify the 'active ingredients' that contribute to the development of parents' self-regulatory capacity. In 2017, honours research will be connected to the latter project.
