Personal profile

Research interests

My research and professional aims are to reduce the prevalence and burden of common mental health disorders, and reduce barriers to care. 

There are three parts to this research. First is research aimed at understanding the mechanisms of change during psychological therapy. Second is research concerned with the development and evaluation of new psychological treatment models. Third is research aimed at determining how these protocols can be most safety and effectively deployed in routine clinical settings.

The scope of my work is both conceptual and pragmatic. My current research explores the benefits of unified or trans-diagnostic treatment protocols across different disorder groups, age, and ethnic groups. This has implications for the structure of psychiatric diagnostic systems and models of psychopathology. Pragmatic questions include how these new treatment protocols can be administered safely, effectively, and acceptably to consumers. My other current research projects are concerned with improving understanding of the mechanisms of change during psychotherapy, and how to best develop standards and regulations for virtual models of psychological care.

My roles include Project Director of the Australian national MindSpot Clinic,, Project Director of the Western Australian Practitioner Online Referral and Treatment Service (PORTS),, and Co-Director of the eCentreClinic research clinic, I currently serve as a Board Member of the New South Wales Board of the Psychology Board of Australia, and am a member of the Digital Mental Health Advisory Group for the Australian Department of Health.
