Research Expertise

My research interests are three-fold: (1) To understand the interface between behavior and biology in order to integrate social, psychological and biological approaches to understanding health and illness over the life course, (2) To explore the multiple pathways linking psychiatric and medical comorbidity, particularly chronic conditions such as diabetes, and (3) To inform interventions which reflect an integrative approach to health to effectively reduce the burden of mental disorders.
