How do we help people change their behaviour to make their lives better? How do we motivate them and teach them best for growth?
I work at the intersection of psychology, education, and health. I use the psychology of motivation and performance to identify ways of changing behaviour. I hope to use the science of learning to identify environments and ways of communicating that help people change. And I target behaviour change that improves people's health and wellbeing. I strive to create a challenging, motivating, and supportive environment for those I hope to help, not just my clients and potential research students.

Professor Peter Rendell is director of the Cognition and Emotion Research Centre at Australian Catholic University. The centre conducts experimental psychology research in the field of cognitive and neuropsychology. He has a focus on cognitive ageing with a particular interest in prospective memory (memory for future intentions such as keeping appointments and taking medication) and episodic future thinking (ability to imagine future events and show foresight). He is also interested in memory in various other groups including autism, chronic heart failure and substance users. In addition, he is currently investigating emotional processing and social cognition in older adults and various clinical groups.

My primary research interests are in social cognition, emotion processing and cognitive neuropsychology. My research has focused on understanding the cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in processing emotional expressions and making social judgements. My research also aims to uncover the reasons why certain people have difficulties recognising the emotional expressions of others and using emotional expressions to guide their social judgements. My research has primarily employed cognitive neuropsychological, electrophysiological and behavioural techniques.
