Personal profile

Research Interests

I am leading the Be Well Lab, a partnership between Flinders University and South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) Be Well Co. My primary research interest sits at the intersection of mental wellbeing and mental illness. In my research, I measure both positive levels of mental health namely psychological wellbeing and resilience as well as symptoms of psychological distress. This allows me to develop, evaluate and disseminate mental health interventions to improve both mental health and wellbeing in our communities as well as in vulnerable groups. My research has attracted significant funding from a variety of funding schemes (e.g., Movember, Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Breakthrough Mental Health Research Foundation) and I have published my work extensively.

I am also interested in developing and evaluating technology-enhanced interventions (Internet, Apps, Podcast, SMS) to improve wellbeing and prevent and treat mental illness.

Research Biography

I was awarded a PhD in Psychology from the University of Tübingen, Germany in 2011. Before joining Flinders University in 2019, I held academic appointments in Germany (University Heidelberg), Portugal (University of Minho), Singapore (James Cook University, Singapore) and Australia (The Australian National University and University of Canberra).
