My current research focuses on improving our understanding of the empirical structure of psychopathology based on the specific patterns in which symptoms of mental disorders tend to co-occur. For example, someone who is depressed is likely to also experience anxiety, and someone who has problems with gambling is likely to also struggle with drug or alcohol use.
My research uses these patterns in symptoms and disorders to characterise the nature, causes, and consequences of mental illness across the lifespan.
