Research Summary

My research interests are in the use of data to improve healthcare delivery.

One focus is whether a better understanding of the interaction between clinical and socio-demographic patient characteristics can inform a more personalised and tailored approach to routine treatment for mental health conditions. This includes the potential development and use of algorithms to support clinical decision making.

I am particularly interested in how big data, especially around co-occurring mental and physical health issues, can improve our ability to predict the risk of mental health illness as well as individual treatment outcome.

I also have an interest in the measurement of clinical needs and symptoms, conducting psychometric analyses and between-group differences in measure interpretation.

Teaching Summary

I supervise a small number of MSc and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) thesis projects. I am the statistics demonstrator for the DClinPsy course and have taught the statistics module of this course.
