Research Interests


My clinical interests are in CBT for depression, anxiety and addiction problems. My research primarily focuses on the development of methods to predict and prevent poor treatment outcomes (i.e. dropout, persistent distress after therapy, relapse) and to optimally match patients to specific interventions.


My research involves quantitative analyses of practice-based datasets (cohort studies), experimental studies (i.e. randomized controlled trials) and quasi-experimental studies. I am also interested in applying signal detection methods to clinical problems such as psychometric test validation, diagnostic accuracy and prognostic assessments.

Research questions

  • Why do some patients respond less well to evidence-based psychological interventions?
  • Why do some patients relapse? Can we prevent relapse?
  • What are complex cases and how can we identify them?
  • Do complex cases require specific interventions to benefit from therapy?
  • Can we improve outcomes by matching patients to specific treatments or procedures?
  • Can we improve outcomes using prediction and feedback methods?
