I have a BSc(Hons) and a PhD, both in Psychology (Plymouth and Warwick, respectively). Much of my research is in applied aviation psychology (e.g., pilot decision-making), although occasionally I collaborate with researchers on other projects of interest. A large part of my research is experimental and uses primary data, although I also have experience of systematic review methodology (I have published 3 and supervised several student's systematic reviews).
My research has been featured in the British Psychological Society's Digest and I've been written about in newspapers such as the Independent (UK) and the HR website HRZone; I have also commented in various national and international newspaper articles.
In addition to supervising PhDs (8 completed so far), I have supervised 12 Master’s theses; currently I am primary supervisor of 2 Phds and co-supervisor for 2more.
I won the College of Business Supervisor's Award (2014) and Massey University's Research Translation Competition (2016).
I am keen to supervise further PhD theses, particularly those in the area of decison making in aviation. For potential candidates who have a high GPA, there is the possibility of gaining a Massey PhD scholarship.

My primary areas of interest are aviation decision-making, general aviation psychology, underreporting of safety issues, mild-hypoxia.
I am always keen to consider collaborations or postgraduate supervision in these areas.
When time allows, I also conduct research in health, CAM, companion animals studies, and loneliness.
