Research summary

  • My research focuses on examining antenatal and postnatal risk factors for the development of psychopathology in childhood and adolescence. My current research interests are in the following areas:
  • Epidemiology of depression in childhood and adolescence with a focus on explaining why gender differences in depression emerge during adolescence.  
  • The role of individual factors (e.g. pubertal development, temperament) and family environmental factors (e.g. socioeconomic position, father absence, parenting) in determining risk for development of psychopathology.
  • Contributing factors for risk of incontinence in children and adolescents and mental health outcomes associated with incontinence.
