Research Summary

Using insights gained from training and research in psychiatric and social epidemiology, and applied health research, my research and public engagement activities focus on urban mental health; social determinants of inequalities in mental health; and, young adult mental health, using mixed methods approaches.

My past research has examined issues such as inequalities in physical health among people with mental-physical comorbidities, the mental health of inner-city sexual minorities, and that of women in the Armed Forces. After moving to an applied health research context at UCL, I carried out a mixed methods evaluation of co-located welfare rights advice in health care settings. My current and future research interests focus on individual and population-level interventions to support young people’s mental health and reduce inequalities in mental health and related outcomes. I am particularly interested in how best to evaluate and support the work of voluntary and community sector organisations to help under-served populations.

I am also one of the coordinators of the Health Inequalities Research Network (HERON), a public engagement network (currently funded by the Wellcome Trust). HERON aims to promote community approaches to knowledge dissemination and youth outreach in collaboration with voluntary and community sector organisations, researchers, and health professionals.
