Peter Allen was Lecturer in the School of Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom. He was formerly a lecturer at Curtin University where he taught research methods and statistics to undergraduate students, working with them to solve problems and answer practical questions using IBM SPSS Statistics. Peter's main areas of research interest are online behaviour, online research methods, and research methods pedagogy.

Dr Kellie Bennett is an Associate Professor in the School of Medicine at the University of Western Australia. Kellie teaches in the medical and dental programmes, supervises postgraduate students and has provided statistical advice for a number of large research projects. Kellie’s main research interests include psychological aspects of mental health, medical communication, developmental consequences of substance use, and related statistical analysis and research methodology.

Brody has worked as Senior Research Fellow at the Telethon Kids Institute, as well as in research and teaching roles at the psychology disciplines of Curtin University from 2012-2015 and Murdoch University from 2015-2021 in Western Australia, and his research focuses on surveying instrument development and validation in the space of wellbeing and protective factors. Brody’s enthusiasm towards quantitative data analysis has led to co-authoring two (now three!) textbooks for tertiary students on how to conduct and interpret data analysis, which have been used in hundreds of undergraduate courses in Australia.
