Dr Amy LIM
PhD, MSc, BScoSc (Singapore Management University)
Lecturer in Psychology, Singapore Discipline Lead
I am the Singapore Discipline Lead (Psychology) and Lecturer at the College of Science, Health, Engineering, and Education, Murdoch University, based at the Murdoch Singapore Office.
I completed both my Masters and PhD at Singapore Management University. During the course of my program, I was involved in several research examining personality and individual differences, the performance of women, and decision-making and performance under the influence of modern stimuli. My doctoral research with Dr Cheng Chi-Ying was on stereotype threat; using primes and tools measuring for cognitive resources, the aim of the research was to understand why some women suffer at the reminder of their gender and yet some others are unaffected by it.
Having the opportunity to work alongside with several great evolutionary psychologists, especially Dr Norman Li, I often apply evolutionary frameworks in my research on current societal issues including women in organisations, marital and reproductive decisions in modern societies, and our use of modern technologies.

My research expertise lies in Social and Evolutionary Psychology. Specifically, I study the individual differences amongst women, and how these account for performance differences in STEM fields, the behaviours women display in the workplace, and their support for female leaders. My current research focuses on current societal issues, such as fertility and other modern phenomena, using evolutionary frameworks.
