Research interests

My principal research interests cover the interplay between neurobiological, clinical and behavioural aspects of  adolescent development and youth mental health. My research involves the transition from health to disease, with a particular interest in emerging mental health problems (psychosis), neuroimaging (MRI and fMRI), social cognition (empathy, psychosocial functioning), adolescent and young adult risk-taking behaviour, and the impact of stress on brain and behaviour.
