My Research

Improving mental health in infancy, childhood, and adolescence

My research examines the early detection, prevention, and treatment of mental health problems in infancy, childhood, and adolescence with the aim to promote wellbeing across the lifespan.


Recently, my research has been investigating infants’ socio-emotional attention, psycho-physiological responses, and evaluative conditioning, and how these processes relate to child wellbeing and mental health. 

My research also aims to improve evidence-based prevention and intervention programs for child mental health problems. 


I advocate for policies that increase access to evidence-based interventions to optimise child wellbeing.

I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues, practitioners, and industry partners to pursue shared and complementary interests. I am available for media commentary. Feel free to Contact me.
