My research interests include adolescent mental health and wellbeing, sport performance and successful parenting.

My current research involves evaluating a web-based program called YOLO, which is designed to help adolescents live a meaningful and values driven life. The Program is based on ACT processes and teaches skills that can be used to manage the challenges of life and study, while at school, as well as at a later time, such as during further study, career, and personal life.
