I have an interest in chronopsychiatry and metabolic psychiatry, so far in relation to bipolar disorder. I regularly attend weekly the Chronopsychiatry Research Group meetings run by Professor Daniel Smith. I also have an interest in the sexual and reproductive health of people with mental illness, and how this could be improved, in respect to cervical/STI screening.
