Dr Lisa Lole is currently employed as a balanced academic (Lecturer), teaching into research methods and statistics, at Central Queensland University, Australia. She has a strong understanding of research design principles, statistical analysis, mixed methods design, interviewing techniques, scientific writing, and project management.
Her research interests are varied but centre around behavioural addictions, behaviour change, and motivation psychology, more broadly; accordingly, she has also been involved in a variety of projects, spanning gambling, substance use, social media use, developmental disorders, experimental cognitive psychology, and health promotion.
The focus of her research, at present, is in problem gambling, modern technology, and the motivations for engaging with these. Lisa is motivated by conducting research that can be meaningfully translated into tangible community outcomes.
