Expert Profile


Diana is Associate Professor at the Department of Psychology, IIUM. Trained in Ergonomics (Human Factors) at Loughborough University and later, Applied Psychology at the University of Nottingham, UK, her research interests are in the areas of public transport crowding and commuting stress, crowd behaviour and crowd management, as well as restorative effects of environments and environmental ergonomics. Her work has been focused on understanding the nature, process, and outcomes of passenger crowding on trains and investigating different demand management options to mitigate this issue. Her work also extends into the study of related settings, such as overcrowding at large public gatherings (e.g., Hajj), in which she is particularly interested in whether crowd behaviour plays a role in evacuation planning and overall crowd management.


In another line of research, Diana has used measurements of physiological parameters to study how people respond to different types of environment, especially in terms of restorative experiences and cognitive performance. Apart from these areas, her work collaborations extend to investigating religiosity, occupational ergonomics and safety, digital literacy and online safety, work and women’s well-being, as well as development and evaluation of interventions. Within these collaborations, she has developed two copyrighted scales, i.e., the Rail Passenger Crowding (RPC) scale and the IIUM Religiosity Scale (IIUMRelS). She has published widely in these fields (see ORCID ID: orcid.org/0000-0002-7595-9852 and https://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?user=UoTvwZUAAAAJ&hl=en), and has consulted with a variety of private sector and public institutions on issues related to road safety, learning innovative space, and behaviour-based safety. To know more about a particular strand of her work, see https://beyondcommuting.wixsite.com/projects. Enquiries for research and professional collaborations are welcomed. Diana can also be reached via @beyondcommuting on Twitter.
