Research activities

My research interests are in psychiatric epidemiology and pharmacoepidemiology. On the one hand I am researching the determinants and negative consequences for major depression and bipolar disorder. This research involves analysis of data from large population health surveys of the Canadian population. Recently some of these surveys have become linked to administrative data on hospital discharges and also mortality. We now have the unprecedented opportunity for an integrative approach to understanding the full picture of life events and morbidity of individuals and how these factors predict hospitalization and mortality (including suicide). On the other hand I am documenting drug recommendations for these disorders in an effort to understand if they truly are under-treated as is so dogmatically believed. My teaching interests are in mental disorders and their biological causes, and in the history of neuroscience/psychiatry. I also help run the History of Neuroscience Interest Group.
