I am a Senior Lecturer in HR and Organisation Behaviour at the School of Business, University of New South Wales Canberra. As on organisational behaviour researcher, I have a growing reputation for excellent research in the areas of work-related intimate partner aggression, leadership, and the vocational experiences of vulnerable workers. Since formally entering academia in 2018, my research has been published in top management journals including Journal of Management, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Journal of Vocational Behavior, The Leadership Quarterly, and Journal of Career Assessment.
Before entering academia, I amassed more than 20 years of industry experience in educational administration, teaching, and research. I served in a variety of leadership roles in higher education including posts in research management, admissions services, faculty development, and inclusion services. I possess strong innovative spirit and have initiated unique approaches to educational delivery and management founded on evidence-based practices. I was also a recipient of the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) grant awarded by the United States of America with special focus on inclusive higher education. I served as board member and adviser for public and private organisations with special interest in inclusive higher education, learner-centered practices, and restorative justice in schools. I hold two PhDs including one in business (The Australian National University) and another in education (De La Salle University Manila).
I have a growing reputation as an emerging scholar on gender-based violence (i.e., work-related intimate partner aggression, sexual harassment) and the dark side of human behaviour in organisations (i.e., micromanagement). My research falls under two key themes: (1) the impact of various forms of control on work and well-being specifically work-related intimate partner aggression and micromanagement, and (2) the vocational experiences of vulnerable workers. Since formally entering academia in 2018, my work has been published in top-tiered management journals including the Journal of Management, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Journal of Vocational Behavior, The Leadership Quarterly, and Journal of Career Assessment.
My expertise falls under the following areas:
