Personal profile

Research interests

My research examines the development of psychological disorders, particularly posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression, with a specific focus on understanding and improving the mental health of children and adolescents living in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). I study the cognitive-behavioural, biological and social factors that contribute to the development of PTSD and depression. My research also focuses on understanding how history of parental mental illness may be associated with child development and risk of psychological disorders. I am particularly interested to learn how parents and others can provide support for children struggling with mental health problems, and to identify culturally sensitive strategies and potential intervention targets in high-adversity contexts.
