Desiree Kozlowski Bachelor of Psychology (1st Class Hons); SCU University Medallist; APA Scholarship Recipient; PhD Candidate Desiree Kozlowski is currently a Lecturer in Psychology, School of Health and Human Sciences, Southern Cross University Desiree Kozlowski is currently researching the interplay between self-perceived gender and the perception of the gender of others. I am particularly interested in the self-referential and context-dependent nature of judgements and behaviour that we perceive to be objective. I am also interested in the neuro-processing, and other aspects, of hedonic pleasure. I am also involved, through SCU:RISIR, in research examining the psychosocial impact of asbestos-related diseases both on individuals with a diagnosis and on their families, particularly their partner/spouse/carer. I facilitate www.dustedcommunity.net, which is an on-line, peer-to-peer support network for people affected by an asbestos-related diagnosis
