My research interests are in mood disorders, specifically perseverative psychopathologies such as generalised anxiety disorder, depressive rumination, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. My current work focuses on using experimental psychopathology techniques to examine mechanisms of worry.
I am also interested in the development of therapeutic interventions. This includes the transferral of laboratory findings to clinical practice and the extension of new techniques such as Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy to a broad client base.
I am also co-convenor of Mood and Anxiety Research in Sussex (MARS), which aims to foster academic and NHS anxiety and mood research collaborations in Sussex and facilitate funding for pure and applied research on anxiety and mood through both Sussex Partnership Trust and Sussex University.
