Personal profile

Research Interests

I am interested in factors influencing why people have low levels of wellbeing and develop mental illness and identifying psychological interventions that are efficacious. Specifically, I am examining how social and psychological risk factors lead to poor mental health (e.g., symptoms of depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorders or eating disorders).

My research interests include 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).
