Research expertise

My previous research focus was in the area of psychoneuroendocrinology, specifically the effect of early life infection on adult functioning. One particular interest was the influence of sex on health outcomes. Currently, my research work focuses on mental health with an interest on quality of life interventions for people living with dementia and people living with schizophrenia. Also of interest is the influence of gender on mental health and help seeking.
