I am part of the BetterStart Health and Development Research Group. My work currently involves a large systematic review evaluating two family-based treatments aimed at improving youth functioning and reducing reoffending, as part of Dr Catia Malvaso’s Discovery Early Career Researcher Award funding. I am a registered psychologist and my research interests largely relate to mental health across the lifespan.
