About

I have been a registered psychologist for more than 20 years. My research activities in the past were largely focused in the human psychoneuroendocrinoimmunology area. In particular, I was interested in investigating the effect of commercially available alcohol on the inter-relationship between steroid hormones, energy metabolism and immune function in healthy young adults. Other projects that I have been involved in include: determining the efficacy of nutritional therapy in prevention of migraine; identifying the psycho-social predictors of drug and alcohol consumption in young adults; assessing the effect of restricted feeding on cortisol rhythmicity in humans; developing community-based psychosocial support for cancer survivors; and investigating the contribution of psychological factors to diet and physical activity in young adults. More recently my research focus has shifted to exploring factors associated with student support and wellbeing.
