My research spans a number of different areas of social psychology, personality and individual differences, and social cognition. My PhD was completed in the area of implicit social cognition and I have recently undertaken several projects exploring implicit and explicit prejudices. This research includes student projects and inter-university collaborations. I also have interests in the area of implicit self-cognitions, especially self-evaluations and cognitions about eating and body image. Most recently I have commenced research in the topic of embodied cognition (e.g., the effects of tactile sensations such as roughness on social behaviours such as donating to charity).

I joined the School of Psychology as a Senior Lecturer in June, 2015. Prior to joining ACU, I worked as a Lecturer at the University of Queensland and an Assistant Professor at the University of Houston. I completed my PhD in the Social Psychology Program at Ohio State University in 2004.
My research examines the psychology of social media use. In particular, I am interested in activities and experiences that promote and threaten belonging and well-being, and factors related to social media addiction.
