Research

Research

My research takes a population and community health approach by examining major health burdens in the community.  My Unit's areas of focus are:

  1. injury prevention and control
  2. at-risk youth and mental health issues

Specifically, I am interested in:

  • road safety issues such as alcohol, drugs and driving; street racing; medical conditions and driving;
  • adolescent health issues such as risk taking and health compromising behaviours, self-rated health status and health care utilization;
  • mental health issues such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, mood and anxiety disorders and community mental health issues and care utlization
