PhD Candidate, The University of Queensland
I am a PhD Candidate in the School of Psychology at The University of Queensland.
My research interest is in the field of developmental psychology, with a focus on the development of gender and social cognition. I was a dancer with the Queensland Ballet before completing my Bachelor of Psychological Science at The University of Queensland. Hence, I am also interested in the role of The Arts in mental health and wellbeing for all. I am an Australian Orchid Council and Australasian Native Orchid Society (ANOS) judge. Since 2016 I have been an elected member of the ANOS council.
My research interest is in the field of developmental psychology, with a focus on the development of gender and social cognition. Specifically, I am interested in how adults use developmentally relevant language categories toward children based on gender. My research is mainly conducted within The Early Cognitive Development Centre. I am also interested in the role of the arts in mental health and well-being for all.
