My research interests primarily focus on the nature and treatment of anxiety disorders and on furthering the understanding of ruminative thought processes. In addition I am involved in a range of experimental studies aimed at further understanding the factors maintaining a range of disorders and behaviours including social phobia, generalized anxiety, perfectionism and procrastination and binge eating disorder. I am also involved in a number of studies that look to enhance treatment effectiveness and delivery for social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, child anxiety disorders and victims of school bullying.
