  • Chair in Clinical Trials & Applied Epidemiological

I have trained as a psychiatrist at the Maudsley Hospital and as an epidemiologist at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. My first research post was in the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London  where I obtained my PhD. I have also worked in the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and in the Research and Development Division of the Department of Health.

Research Themes
Research Summary

I am interested in investigating the causes of psychiatric disorder, particularly depressive illness and psychosis. Causal factors that are potentially preventable could be especially useful but clues to aetiology also can improve our understanding of illness and help to devise treatments. I also carry out randomised controlled trials to evaluate treatments for depression in primary care. I aim to carry out research that has practical implications in improving clinical care of people with psychiatric disorder.

Teaching Summary

I am interested in teaching psychiatrists and medical students about why research does and often does not inform clinical practice.
