Biography

As a Research Fellow I am working on the project titled "School identification, school climate and school outcomes: Evidence from  ACT Schools". I also worked with Associate Professor Kate Reynolds on a project "Understanding the school as an intergroup system: Implications for school reform and improving student and staff outcomes". The research investigates self-categorization processes and social change, as well as the role of social identity in school functioning. I joined this team from 2012 specially for longitudinal data analyses, scale development, and multi-level analysis for the project.

Researcher's projects

Understanding the school as an intergroup system: Implications for school reform and improving student and staff outcomes. Awarded by the ARC Linkage Project scheme to Katherine Reynolds, Boris Bizumic, Emina Subasic, Kathy Melsom (DET) and Fiona MacGregor (DET) in partnership with the ACT Department of Education and Training.

The project which continues work started in 2007, has been funded for three years and seeks to improve school outcomes (learning, attendance, behaviour, psychological well-being) through a better understanding of group processes and the way different groups within the school can achieve their shared aims and goals.  The central idea is that one’s group memberships and associated norms and practices directly impact on the attitudes and behaviours of individual members.  The aim is to change the relevant groups within a school and how they relate in order to build a more positive school climate and higher school identification and as a result, improve school outcomes.
