Institution: Florida State University, USA.
Supervisory team: Dr. Jessica Ribeiro.
Position: PhD Student.
Current research: My Master’s research aims to characterize and predict suicide plans in the short term. I am currently working on building traditional statistical models as well as machine learning models to predict suicide planning in high-risk sample populations. I’m also exploring the ethics behind algorithm construction and use for predicting suicide outcomes.
- Suicide plans
- Short-term prediction of suicidal thoughts and behaviours
- Machine learning, dynamical systems, and network analyses
- Temporal dynamics of suicidal behaviour, individual differences
