Personal profile

Research interests

I have taught psychology courses at UCLA, California State University Northridge, and the University of Maryland European Division. My doctoral dissertation concerned the autonomic and cognitive effects of acute alcohol intoxication in social drinkers. I joined the faculty of the Department of Psychology at Bond University in 1995. My areas of expertise include psychophysiology, psychopharmacology, biological psychology, neuroscience, consciousness, and drug and alcohol dependence.

My published work includes papers on the psychophysiological and neuropsychological correlates of drug dependence and alcohol intoxication, theory of drug dependence and alcoholism, and traits associated with substance abuse. The role of prefrontal cortical functioning in substance abuse/dependence, as mediated via traits such as impulsivity, reward sensitivity and alexithymia, has been a particular emphasis.

Recently, in collaboration with Dr. Mark Edwards, I have investigated the relationship between anxiety, attention and cognition.

Statement for HDR students

HDR students that I currently supervise are working on projects designed to investigate the relationship between personality traits, neuropsychological functioning and substance use, including how trait factors influence response to treatment for addiction.

In collaboration with Dr. Edwards, students are also working on projects examining how situational and personality factors are related to attention and memory performance.
