Dr Chiara Horlin
- Lecturer (Psychology)
BSc (Hons) - University of Western Australia PhD - University of Western Australia My research interests predominantly involve understanding the lived experience of autistic adults and their families, with a particular focus on masking a camouflaging. In 2020 I co-founded the University's Neurodiversity Network to provide awareness, representation, and promote inclusion of neurodiversity in higher education. We particularly wish to provide opportunities to co-collaborate with neurodivergent staff and students (current and prospective), as well as connecting with community stakeholders, and both the global neurodiversity movement and higher education community. I have previously, or am currently, researching; - Experiences of neurodiversity, particularly the experience of women identifying as autistic or having ADHD. - Neurodiversity in Higher Education - Neurodiversity in the workplace - The impact of living with chronic pain/illness - Eustress, and the positive mental health benefits of risk-taking. - Empathy and its atypical development, - Gender identity and gender expression.
