Research Interests

My research interests include the clinical and social outcomes of people with major mood disorders, including in their early phases. My research also currently focuses on understanding mood instability in the development of mental disorders, and its expression and significance in people with established mental illness.

Biography

I read Medicine at the University of Cambridge and then qualified as a Doctor at University College London (UCL). During my psychiatric training in north London, I completed an MSc in Psychiatric Theory and Research and worked as a Clinical Lecturer in Social and Community Psychiatry at UCL. My PhD, awarded in 2008, contained a series of studies and analyses on the subject of schizophrenia and employment. I took up my current post in 2009.
