Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

With my background in psychiatry and public health, my core area of interest is the interface of physical and mental health in adolescents and young adults. I am particularly interested in weight, eating behaviors, eating disorders, body image, and sexual health. I also have strong interest in clinical and population epidemiology.

I teach Evidence Based Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology. I also organize courses on various themes in mental health, sexual health, academic writing, research methods. I also organize writing retreats.
