Personal profile

Research interests

Mental health and wellbeing are influenced by a complex interplay of social, genomic and developmental factors. Understanding these patterns and how we can intervene to promote good mental health is one of the greatest and most important challenges of our time.

Our lab uses emerging technologies to collect, analyse and visualize data from large population samples around the world, exploring the dynamic relationship between social and genomic factors and wellbeing over the life course. Recent projects from the lab include the spACE project which is mapping geographical variation in social and genetic influences on complex traits, and the EMBERS project which is collecting millions of social media interactions from thousands of participants in epidemiological cohorts to track dynamic genetic and environmental influences on wellbeing in emerging adulthood.
