JK-fullsizeI am a Lecturer in Psychology in the School of Social Sciences at University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. Broadly, I conduct research in the field of Health Psychology. Specifically, my research interests focus on improving quality of life through enhancing physical and psychological health and wellbeing. My research aims to achieve this by exploring factors that may reduce the impact of  stress on health and quality of life, and through the use of psychological theories to understand and change health behaviours.
