My research activity is mainly focused on early detection and intervention in psychosis. I am particularly interested in the epidemiology and psychopathology of people at high-risk of developing psychosis, with psychotic experiences and with first-episode psychosis. This includes clinical antecedents, neurobiological and sociodemographic characteristics. I am also keen in understanding the factors associated with diagnostic stability of first-episode psychotic disorders. As applied health researcher, an important part of my research activity is dedicated to service development within the NHS. I am the Lead Consultant Psychiatrist of the multi-award winning CAMEO Early Intervention in Psychosis Services; Lead Clinical Director of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network (CRN) East of England; Mental Health Theme Lead for the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) East of England; and Honorary Professor at the University of East Anglia (UEA).
