Our research examines mental health risk and resilience in young people. We do so by integrating cultural, social, cognitive and neurobiological factors and their interactions.

Current projects in the group focus on understanding the mechanisms that aid resilient responses to stress: THRIVE, REACT, RAISE and RESIST, and examining the social, cognitive and neurobiological mechanisms of suicidality in young people: HOPES.
