Personal profile


Dr. Amanda George is an Associate Professor in the Discipline of Psychology at the University of Canberra. Amanda's research focuses on risk taking behaviours among young adults. In particular, she focuses on modifiable factors that can be targeted to reduce harm. For example, her research to date has included examining the influence of drinking motives on the relationships of impulsivity/social anxiety with risky drinking (including drinking games). Amanda has also investigated mobile phone use while driving among young adults. Consistent with her targeted approach she has investigated the influence of anticipated regret and perceived risk on this behaviour.
