Research interests
Current research interests involve understanding the biological and psychological mechanisms by which reproductive hormones (e.g. estrogen and progesterone) influence mood and wellbeing across the female lifespan (e.g. adolescence, menopause transition). Clinical interests fall within the areas of adolescent and adult Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
