Current research: I am a mental health epidemiologist with an interest in life course risk factors for suicide and self-harm. My work has explored the social determinants of mental ill health and has looked at the impact of national policies in reducing suicide deaths. I have a particular research interest in mental health research in low and middle income countries. My current work involved working with government and civil society organisations to translate my research into practice.

Research interests:

  • Social risk factors for suicide and self-harm
  • Public health policies and interventions to reduce suicide in low and middle income countries
  • Life course epidemiology
  • Access to means (e.g. pesticides)

Key publications:

Can help with: I have expertise in using statistical software for medical research (STATA, MLwiN, SPSS), as well as skills in database design (Access). I can help with statistical analysis plans. I also chair the Bristol Suicide and Self-harm meetings and can provide links with researchers in Bristol to anyone who is interested.

What’s essential to your well-being: Maintaining a good work life balance – not having a smart phone!
