Research Summary

I head the Mood in Neurodevelopment (MIND) Unit at UCL. As a Clinician Scientist, I study mood and the mechanisms that lead to depression, particularly in adolescents. I am learning from my patients, my colleagues, but also from disciplines outside my own, such as philosophy, history, computer science and neurology. My clinical interest is in depression and severe irritability (emotion dysregulation).

I was until recently Senior Investigator and Chief of the Section of Clinical and Computational Psychiatry at NIMH/NIH in the USA and before that a Senior Lecturer and a Wellcome Trust Fellow at the Institute of Psychiatry Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College London. I trained in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Maudsley Hospital. I am the President of the International Society for Research in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

Recent insights from our laboratory include:

  • How the timing of events influences the way we feel
  • The Phenomenon of Passage of Time Dysphoria and how it affects psychological tasks.
  • The limited ability of MRI to predict suicidality in young people.
  • Use of magnetoencephalography to describe reward and mood dynamics in the brain
  • How to treat severe irritability in youth.

I am also very excited about our current and upcoming work on:

  • How power relationships shape emotional responses.
  • Statistical approaches to capturing adolescents’ preferences for treatment.
