Personal profile

Research interests

I am originally from the UK and joined Bond University in 2005 as Program Director for the Masters in Forensic Psychology. I am a Registered Psychologist with Forensic and Clinical endorsement, and also a Chartered Forensic Psychologist in the UK.

My research in the area of crime and interpersonal risk management encompasses my primary focus on the psychology of deliberate fire-setting; as well as investigating the construct of the psychopathic personality within the workplace.

I am also interested, more generally, in personality pathology and its link to offending behaviour, and the relationship between trauma and violence.

My PhD was on the topic of deliberate fire-setting, and together with colleagues from Broadmoor Special Hospital I subsequently developed a treatment program for this offence. Simultaneously, I pursued research in the areas of personality pathology in general and psychopathic personality in particular.

I am currently engaged in several inter-related research studies, under a program of research collaboration, with a colleague from the field of Business Management in the U.S.

Research interests

Currently I am supervising four HDR students whose topics include:

  • Psychopathic personality characteristics and counter-productive work behaviour
  • Risk assessment and management in deliberate fire-setting
  • The link between early trauma and domestic violence
  • Investigating the personality characteristics of illegal money lending operatives.
