Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

My core areas of interest are mental health, public health, sexual health and gender and health. My work examines the interface of mental health and wellbeing in adolescents and young adults. I am particularly interested in recovery, mental wellbeing, eating disorders, body image, and sexual health. I also have strong interest in clinical and population epidemiology. I have also published several non-fiction books.

I teach Evidence Based Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology. In addition, I offer various courses for health professionals - mental health, sexual health, research methods, academic writing. I also organize writing retreats.
