About

I am very interested in the development, implementation and research of technology delivered interventions for mental health problems. In particular I have an interest in researching such interventions for high prevalence disorders such as depression and anxiety. I am also interested to investigate the transferability of such technology delivered interventions into Latin America. It will be interesting to see whether they can achieve the same appeal and efficacy as has been demonstrated for many such interventions in higher-income countries.
