The focus of my current research work is digital phenotyping, sleep and circadian rhythm, and student mental health. Digital phenotyping has the potential to provide significant insights into psychiatric disorder as well as enhance clinical care and self-management. Alongside colleagues in the Department of Maths and the Alan Turing Institute we are developing mathematical tools to better quantify the data such approaches generate and crucially to ensure that it has clinical relevance.
