Biographical details

After exploring diverse parts of the world, and meeting many interesting people, Rob's current project is co-operating with colleagues and research students in the design and analysis of health science research, across all areas of the Faculty of Health Sciences. After 20 years of this pursuit he has yet to find a project uninteresting, or a colleague less than admirable.

Teaching and supervision

Contributes to teaching undergraduate social psychology, and undergraduate and postgraduate research methods.
