I work as a Presidential Fellow (Applied Health Research) in the Centre for Mental Health and Satefy. My expertise is in mental health epidemiology and suicide prevention. I utilise large-scale population healthcare data to examine rates of suicidal behaviour and and risk factors, treatment and outcomes following self-harm.
I have previously worked on a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Programme Grant for Applied Research concerned with guiding health service priorities for preventing suicide in England. I also worked on a European Research Council-funded project using Danish registry data to examine rates of self-harm in adolescents and risk factors for suicide and other causes of death in young people.
My previous work (as a NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow) focused on the use of propensity score modelling to allow accurate estimates of causal inference to be drawn from epidemiologica mental health data.
