A/Prof Patrick Dunlop

Patrick is an organisational psychologist and his expertise lies in understanding how we all differ from one another and how those differences play out in organisational settings. Patrick is very interested in researching how the messages we send when we try to recruit new members to different groups are received by different people. He is keen to apply this research to improve volunteering recruitment practice and is currently researching volunteer recruitment within Scouts.
