He also conducts research to develop scalable and sustainable implementation strategies for these interventions in schools, youth centres and other community settings. He has particular interests in brief (‘low-intensity’) psychotherapies, digital delivery platforms, and ‘task-sharing’ service models utilising peers and other non-specialists. His work uses a variety of quantitative and qualitative methodologies, with a strong emphasis on participatory approaches that give voice to seldom-heard groups.
