Institution: Orygen; Centre for Youth Mental Health, University of Melbourne; Swinburne University of Technology, Australia.

Supervisory team: A/Prof Jo Robinson, A/Prof Simon Rice, A/Prof Maja Nedeljkovic.

Position: PhD (Clinical Psychology) student and Research Assistant.

Current research: I am interested in the ways the internet and digital technologies can be used to support youth at risk of suicide, particularly when integrated into clinical services. My PhD research focusses on evaluating the ethics, acceptability and therapeutic potential of Moderated Online Social Therapy for young people with active suicidal ideation.

Research interests:

  • Digital/online interventions and social media
  • Clinical services
  • Individual trajectories of suicidality (interested but not experienced!)
  • Ethics
