  • Dr Emma Bradshaw

    After completing a Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours, First Class) in 2014, Dr Bradshaw turned her research focus from incremental theories of relationships to the examination of life-goals, or aspirations, and their links with wellbeing. Specifically, her doctoral thesis examined how patterns of intrinsic and extrinsic aspirations (derived using latent profile analysis) relate to various indices of optimal functioning. Dr Bradshaw is also exploring several aspects of self-determination theory (SDT) using a variety of cutting-edge statistical methods including genetic algorithms, network representation, social network analysis, and actor-partner interdependence modelling. Emma's burgeoning program of postdoctoral research builds on evidence that broadening the scope of concern for increasingly distal others is beneficial to one's own wellbeing, and also explores the contextual and psychological conditions that promote integration and striving to do good.
