Largely focusing on impacts through light reduction, climate change, and dredging
How do plants respond to different stressors (developing sub-lethal indicators)?
What levels of stress can they cope with?
What are the consequences of disturbance?
2. Seagrass-grazing interactions
How much is consumed?
How do plants cope with grazing?
3. Seagrass evolution and taxonomy
What are the evolutionary relationships in seagrasses, particularly Posidonia and Halophila?

Masters student in Developmental Psychology, Queen's University, Ontario
I am currently a second-year MSc. student studying Developmental Psychology at Queen's University in the Adolescent Dynamics Lab under Dr. Tom Hollenstein's supervision and will be continuing into my doctoral studies. I completed my BScH. degree at the same institution with a Specialization in Bio-Psychology.
In terms of my research, my long-term goal is to gain a deeper understanding of adolescent digital experiences. Specifically, I aim to explore how youth engage with digital technologies, when, and for whom these technologies are most beneficial. Additionally, I am interested in how parents might be shaping such adolescent digital experiences.
So far, my research has centered on Digital Emotion Regulation, examining how adolescents use digital technologies to manage their emotions (e.g., texting a friend for social support). However, my current master's thesis focuses how adolescents and parents navigate conflict discussions related to digital topics (e.g., screen time, videogaming, social media) in comparison to non-digital or traditional sources of conflict (e.g., chores, schoolwork, sibling disputes).

Research Fellow, University of Sydney
I am a Research Fellow at The Matilda Centre for Research in Mental Health and Substance Use, based at the University of Sydney. My research focuses on the interrelationship between mental health and substance use disorders, particularly anxiety and alcohol use disorders, to inform the development, evaluation and implementation of effective prevention, early intervention, and treatment programs. My work predominantly focuses on digital health interventions, to increase the reach and sustainability of my mental health and substance use interventions.
I have made independent, original, and significant contributions to the existing body of knowledge in this area by leading two independent programs of research that seek to: 1) develop and trial an innovative online Cognitive Bias Modification brain training program to reduce the severity and impact of anxiety and hazardous alcohol use among young adults (‘Re-Train Your Brain’, funded by a 3-year Postdoctoral Fellowship), and 2) understand the prevalence and impact of “drinking to cope” among postpartum mothers to inform the co-development of a novel, innovative and evidence-based anxiety-alcohol intervention tailored for new mothers (‘Healthy Mum, Healthy Bub’).
These programs of research build on my experience in developing, coordinating, and evaluating other interventions in world-first randomised controlled trials, including an internet-delivered early intervention for young adults who drink to cope with anxiety (the ‘Inroads’ study), and an integrated intervention for depression and substance use disorders (the ‘Activate’ study).
