  • Biography/ Background

     

    My doctoral thesis (supervised by Prof. Deborah Turnbull and Prof. Anna Chur-Hansen) explores the relationship between resilience, mental health, university engagement and how these factors predict academic outcomes in first year undergraduates from diverse demographic backgrounds. The findings may have implications in the planning of strategies to promote holistic development in university students.

    I have broad interest in mental health promotion, particularly the research and application of asset-based approaches. I have formerly participated in projects regarding cancer care.
