My PhD research at the University of Queensland explored shared levels of job satisfaction and affect in work groups. I then completed a postdoctoral research fellowship exploring psychological processes underlying transformation leadership development (via an ARC Discovery grant with Queensland Health Pathology and Scientific Services). I then joined a group of social scientists at the Commonwealth, Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) where I began to explore social attitudes towards novel technologies. In my current role, leading the Technology and Work team in CSIRO’s Data61 and the Collaborative Intelligence skills project, I work with a multidisciplinary team of researchers who investigate the impacts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the workforce and, in turn, how AI can facilitate efficient workforce transitions.
My research has been covered by mainstream media outlets such as the ABC’s 7:30 Report, The Australian, The Financial Review and The Conversation and published in scientific journals such as the Journal of Applied Psychology, PLOS One, Leadership Quarterly, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Journal of Occupational Health Psychology and Small Group Research.
