I commenced my PhD with the National Drug Research Institute, Curtin University, in February 2006 with the support of a scholarship from the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing. On 1 June 2012, my PhD was conferred by Curtin University for the thesis ‘Beyond internet as tool: A mixed-methods study of online drug discussion‘. In 2003, I completed a Bachelor of Science with Honours majoring in Psychology and minoring in Sociology, also through Curtin.
