My research interests mainly center around epidemiological studies of children and adolescents with mental health difficulties or disorders and their health service use trajectories across health and social sectors.

I have engaged in research for children and adolescents hospitalised with mental health disorders and deliberate self-harm behaviours, children who have a contact with child protection services, psycho-social outcomes of children with intellectual disabilities, and educational outcomes of children hospitalised with chronic health conditions. I have also research interests for children and adolescents with a mental health disorder who have juvenile justice contacts.

I had training in Mathematics and Statistics. I am interested in the application of multilevel regression analysis, trajectory analysis, and structural equation modelling in the research areas aforementioned. 

I have used routinely collected administrative records including electronic medical records to undertake most of my analyses.
