I am a Ph.D. Candidate at the School of Psychology and the Children's Research Centre, Trinity College Dublin, due to graduate in 2017. I am enrolled on the Structured Ph.D. in Child & Youth Research programme. I am a Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholar. My thesis research aims to explore the factors associated with parents' and peers' responses to adolescent depression. My research interests include adolescent depression, helping and prosocial behaviour, mental heath literacy, stigma, peer group dynamics, and parent/child interaction in adolescence.
