After graduating from LC, Lisa received her PhD from Northeastern University in 2009. Lisa is currently in a combined academic role, running a research lab, teaching undergraduate psychology, and engaging with efforts to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion at the university, in the field, and across science! Towards the latter, she is currently serving as Associate Dean Equity Diversity and Inclusion in the Faculty of Science at UNSW. Her research focuses on positive emotions and social processes, and has been funded by the Australian government and the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. She uses her BHS mug to this day and refers to her own trainees as “labbies”.
