Caroline has had a multifaceted journey in her road to researching and presenting on university student resilience. She is regarded as the leading global authority on theatre audiences through her oft-cited book Audience as Performer: the changing role of theatre audiences in the twenty-first century (Routledge, 2016), and prior to entering academia, Caroline worked as a professional actor on New York stages winning a Drama League Award.

Caroline gives keynotes globally, has written three books and numerous articles on topics that range from the mental health of university students to psychological relationships in the theatre. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, for example, Caroline and Christian Heim theorized on, devised and implemented an innovative mental health program for Caroline’s university students. The aim was to build their resilience during social isolation and significant escalation of their anxiety and depression levels. Findings from this work has been integrated into Caroline’s teaching and research articles, and the program continues to be taught through her unique approach to embodied learning.

Her most recent project has been a global study spanning five years on Resilient Relationships, co-authored with psychiatrist Christian Heim. It is the largest cross-sectional global study on resilience in long-term relationships to date: 1402 coupled individuals were surveyed or interviewed from 52 countries.
