I am an academic child and adolescent psychiatrist based at the University of Melbourne departments of paediatrics and psychiatry. My main research focus is on neurodevelopmental disorders in children and youth. I spent much of my career in Scotland at the University of Dundee moving to Australia in 2016. Throughout my career I have kept a strong clinical interest with a particular focus on implementing evidence based care into routine clinical practice.
