Biography

I have worn many hats in my career. I have been a social/cross-cultural psychologist studying cultural differences in personality and identity formation. I have been a developmental psychologist writing about life course and aging. I have been a medical/health psychologist examining patients and families coping with chronic and progressive illnesses. I have expertise in quantitative and qualitative methods, including scale construction and the mixing of quant and qual data. I have taught in diverse education settings and look forward to engaging with the JCU community.
