I am a consultant psychiatrist at Orygen Youth Health, where I lead the clinical and research program in youth depression. I lead a clinical team of psychiatrists, psychologists, and other allied health professionals in the Youth Mood Clinic, where we assess and manage young people with severe and complex mood disorders. My research interests include studying effective treatments for depression, and using neuroimaging to better understand depression and its treatment.
