I am a research psychologist and family therapist specialising in palliative care.
See my publishing profile on Orcid: http://orcid.org/0000-0002-7218-5775
I am based in Canberra at the Calvary Centre for Palliative Care Research, which is co-located between ACU Canberra and Calvary Health Care. We conduct clinically relevant, robust research into a range of palliative care areas.
I am used to providing supervision via Skype/email etc, so don't let geography get in the way if you're interested in joining the team.
