Kim Caudwell, PhD
I moved to Perth in 2009 to undertake a bachelor degree in Psychology at Curtin University. In November 2012, I graduated with first class honours under the supervision of Professor Martin Hagger. My dissertation focused on the alcohol consumption behaviours of Western Australian undergraduate students, and testing predictive efficacy of a model of behaviour based on motivational and social psychological theories. As of 2012, I am continuing with this line of research into alcohol consumption as part of my PhD under the supervision of Professor Martin Hagger, A/Professor Barbara Mullan, and Adrian North. My PhD focuses primarily on pre-drinking - a drinking behavior associated with increased risk of alcohol-related harm. My wider research and collaborative interests are in how we can draw from psychological and behavioral theories to explain ‘unhealthy’ or risk-laden behaviors, such as excessive alcohol consumption and exercise behaviors, cigarette smoking, and drug use, to inform theory, practice, and broader health policy.
