Current projects

Our research group has been in working in psychiatric hospital setting and keen to apply psychological knowledge to enrich understanding and improve mental health outcomes. We have been examining the predictors of adverse events such as deterioration, drop-out, self-harm, & suicide with Routine Outcomes Monitoring (ROM). We have been developing a symptom and wellbeing monitoring system to enhance the temporal resolution of prediction so that we can better understand the dynamic nature of risk.

Our research group is keen to build on these foundations by using dynamic modelling to understand the different trajectories of risk for adverse outomes in different forms of psychotherapy and the predictors and consequences of being in these different risk groups.
