About Me

Madeline Sprajcer is a lecturer in the College of Psychology. Her primary research areas of interest are sleep, non-standard working arrangements, stress, and fatigue risk management.

Madeline's PhD investigated the impact of on-call work on anxiety, performance, and sleep outcomes. Since then she has worked on a number of projects focusing on fatigue risk management, including work with the Australian National Heavy Vehicle Regulator and the Canadian workplace regulatory body WorkSafeBC. In addition, Madeline has conducted extensive research within a sleep laboratory environment, and in the field. This has included work with the oil and gas industry and Australian metropolitan and country fire services. 

Additionally, Madeline has experience in the review and development of industry fatigue management systems in a variety of industries, including rail, mining, healthcare, ports, and utilities. These activities have been done in a consultancy capacity or from an academic research perspective. 


I am passionate about providing high quality research supervision. My current areas of interest for honours-level research supervision include fatigue-related road safety and driving in new parents, and fatigue and burnout in child and youth workers. I have also supervised research projects in the area of LGBTQI+ parenting, and issues around work, sleep, and health. If you are interested in research supervision, please get in touch!
