Dr Jared Jung

My name is Jared Jung and I am a senior lecturer at The University of New South Wales. I have worked at The University of New South Wales since 2007.

In broad terms, my research interests are in the decision-making of adolescents (including adolescents of high ability) on topics such as careers, university entrance, and friendships, usually incorporating motivational and cultural perspectives.
